The moon tonight will look completely full and the best time to catch it is when it is rising or setting.

Jim Slight, from the Darsham Astronomical Society, said: "Supermoon is just a term for a full moon when it is at its closest to the earth". At its farthest point from the Earth, the Moon is in apogee syzygy, and stargazers might notice a small-looking "micromoon".

The supermoon marks a big difference from 2018, when there was no full moon in February - called a Black Moon.

STARGAZERS across the Gladstone region were treated to a super "snow" moon on Tuesday night.

On Tuesday night, the moon was at perigee-the closest distance of the moon to the Earth within 356,761 kilometers. "I have been waiting for this moon because it is supposed to be the biggest and brightest".

In recent years, traditional Native American names for the full moons have become more common in modern day parlance.

Some people call March's full moons Sap Moons, while others refer to them as Crow Moons.

While the full moon technically peaked at 10:53 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time today, the optimal time to see it will be between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. local.

For the best effect - and the closest you'll get to witnessing the spectacular images seen across social media following such an event - you'll want to look east shortly after moonrise. This occurs when everyday objects like trees and buildings are near the moon, and our minds trick us into thinking the moon is closer because of its proximity to the objects in our line of sight.
