A super blood moon lit up the sky last month.

A supermoon is a full moon that is at the closest point in its orbit to the Earth.

Technically, the supermoon will reach its peak on Tuesday morning at 10:54 a.m. ET, but it won't be visible then.

There many be some drizzle in western and northern parts of the Netherlands on Tuesday evening, making good views of the moon less likely.

Instead, you'll need to wait until after the moon rises at 5.11pm.

The reason for its "snow moon" nickname is because February is associated with having heavy snowfalls according to The Old Farmer's Almanac.

Get ready stargazers, tonight you'll be able to see the biggest and brightest moon this year has to offer in the Netherlands, weather permitting of course.

Saudi minister assails Iran for blaming Riyadh in attack

What is a Super Snow Moon or Super Hunger Moon? This supermoon will be at its closest point to Earth tomorrow, February 19, though it will appear notably brighter and larger than usual on the days before and after, as well. The Super Snow Moon will ensure that the Moon is bigger and brighter in the night sky.

Another supermoon will arrive this week following the celestial event late last month. Black Moon is a term used when there is no full moon or new moon in a month or there is an additional new moon that appears in a month or in a season.

Another supermoon is expected on March 21, but will not be as large or bright as this one.

Is a supermoon really bigger than a normal full moon?

It's a combination of two things - a snow moon and a supermoon.

If you really want to be wowed, your best bet is to check out the full moon when it rises in the east as the sun is setting in the west. At 9:24pm IST, you can look to the sky and enjoy the sight.

Full moon nights are special.

"But the moon energy is still potent and powerful", said Snow Owl, who's waiting for the seven Fridays before the Holy Week in April for the annual "tang-alap", or "the gathering of herbs".
