'While tomorrow (Tuesday) brings 2019's nearest, biggest supermoon,

the Moon will also look full to the eye tonight (Monday). This Moon also brings the strongest tides.

This nearest full Moon of the year will reach its peak on Tuesday, February 19, at 10:53 A.M. EST. “Perigee,” the official astronomical term for the nearest point in the Moon’s orbit to Earth, is three hours before sunrise. This is the closest alignment for the year; whether you can tell if the Moon’s appears biggest or brighter is up for speculation but it’s technically true.

Given the timing, the Moon should appear full both Monday night (February 18) and Tuesday night (February 19).'
