February 9 :
Full Moon And Super Moon.

The term Supermoon has become popularized in recent years as a Full Moon that falls near perigee, the point in the moon’s orbit when it is closest to the Earth. As a result, the Moon appears slightly larger than normal, although the difference can be difficult to detect for the casual observer.

The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated.

This phase occurs at 07:34 UTC. This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Snow Moon because the heaviest snows usually fell during this time of the year.

Since hunting is difficult, this moon has also been known by some tribes as the Full Hunger Moon, since the harsh weather made hunting difficult.

This is also the first of Four Super Moons for 2020.

The Moon will be at its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual
