To get the best, most dramatic supermoon photos, it's best to catch the moon at and just after moonrise or just before moonset.

"The February 2019 supermoon is special because it will be the largest full moon gracing our night skies until 2026", said Emily Drabek-Maunder, astronomer at Royal Observatory Greenwich.

In a Supermoon phenomena, not only is there a full moon, but the Earth's satellite is at the closest point in its orbit around the planet. Technically speaking, the moon will hit its peak at 10:54 a.m. ET Tuesday morning, but it won't be visible at that time because it will be daylight.

He admits there's a bit of hype around supermoons, but at the end of the day, it's still a good way of getting people excited about the moon.

In the United Kingdom, the moon will be closest to earth at 9.06am, but at that time you probably won't be able to see it as the sun will be up.

While the moon's brightness remains dependent on Singapore's weather conditions, the moon is expected to look "slightly larger" when compared with full moons in other months or with objects on the ground nearby.

On Tuesday 19 February the world will be treated to a stunning full moon.

How to watch Super Snow Moon Live?

'I think sunset is the best time to see as it offers another element of a moon illusion, when it appears biggest because it's closest to the horizon, ' Mr Dew told Daily Mail Australia.

For skygazers watching the super snow moon in New York City, the Moon will rise at 5:46 p.m. EST and set at 7:35 a.m. EST on February 20, according to the U.S.

Each month, the full moon carries a different name signifying what is most associated with that time. It's called a "Super Snow Moon".

When a full moon coincides with perigee, it is referred to as a Supermoon. The full moon moment (when the moon lies 180 degrees opposite the sun) will occur at 9.23pm.

The super snow moon is the second of a trio of super moons 2019 will see. This month's full moon will be 221,734 miles from Earth.

The Supermoon is labelled the snow moon because it usually happens during one of the colder periods of the year.
