This spectacular combination is expected to give "the light of the silver moon," a whole new meaning, as the big moonlight lamp dances through the winter sky.
This supermod is declared the closest, largest and brightest of this species by 2026, and is the second of the three supermons. one after another in 2019. While the best time for people in South Utah to see the spectacle is at 2:53 am, the moon will actually be the brightest at 8:53 am, about six hours after Naj the moon's approach, or perigee.
When the perigee is made, the moon looks bigger and brighter in the sky because the moon's orbit is not a perfect circle because of the gravitational forces of both the sun and the Earth causing the distance of the moon from the Earth changes throughout the year.
The upcoming supermountain will be nestled at approximately 221,600 miles from Earth. According to EarthSky, this moment is said to be "100% of its closest approach to the year", which is much closer than the average distance of the Moon by nearly 239,000 miles from the ground. Snowmobile
Tuesday's supermow is taking place during a "snow moon," a term invented by the Indians for a full moon as it appeared in February. According to Almanac of the Old Farmer, the name reflects the cool weather of the year that this moon is when there is snow on the ground.
Making the event on Tuesday even more remarkable, just a few hours before the excess, the surface of the Moon 100% lit by the sun, creating a full moon.
This combination of moon that is closest to the earth and reaches its largest sunlight will create an extraordinarily bright supermune, as seen on Earth, according to NASA.
While "supermona" is not a technically astronomical term, it was first created by Richard Nol in 1979 to describe when the moon is in within 90 per cent of its closest approach.
"In short, the earth, the sun and the moon are in a line, with the moon in its closest approach to the earth," Nole said in an article by Horoscope Magazine in 1979
Nolle argues that supermonths can contribute for extreme coastal tides, heavy storms, powerful earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. However, according to NASA, although the alignment of the sun and the moon causes a small increase in tectonic activity, the effects of the supermona on the ground are insignificant. Many studies conducted over the years have failed to show any significant relationship between supermountains and natural disasters.  The third and final supermod of the year will be held during the Red Moon, reaching its full phase on March 20 at 7:43 pm
