However, the moon will be more visible after it rises at 5.11pm.

January's supermoon was a popular talking point because of its visual similarities to that of a total lunar eclipse, which turned the moon an eerie shade of red. But if the sight of a clear night sky still gives you goosebumps, then you should gear up for the "supermoon" this week.

The supermoon occurs during this full moon because it will be closest in its orbit to Earth.

The Super Snow Moon will peak on 19 February 2019 at 21:23 pm.

It takes place when the moon's orbit brings it to the closest point to Earth while at the same time bathed in sunlight, giving the rock its bright appearance.

Another supermoon is set to grace the celestial stage this week, and it's the largest and brightest our natural satellite will appear all year.

The last time these two events aligned was 19 years ago in March 2000.

In order for a moon to be propelled to supermoon stardom it would have to be 226,000 miles away from the Earth.

This type of moon can also be called a "hunger moon" as it traditionally comes at the end of winter when hunting was harder, making food scarce.

According to USA Today, because of the time of year in the United States, the event is called the snow moon, a Native American nickname to the monthly events, like harvest moon for September and strawberry moon in June and sturgeon moon in August, giving it the full name Super Snow Moon.

Attention US-based skywatchers! February 19 will be the flawless day to gaze upon the Earth's lunar satellite, thanks to a not-so-little thing called the Snow Supermoon.

The event was not fully visible in New Zealand, however the Super New Moon is likely to be as large and bright for us as it is will be to the US.

February 19's full moon is the second lunar spectacle in a supermoon trilogy.

If you miss this month's supermoon, don't fret, as there is going to be another one on March 21, 2019.
