The moon will be the closest it will be this year on Tuesday night. The Super Snow Moon, as it’s been dubbed by astronomers, is the second in a trio of super moons this winter. It will appear about 10 percent larger than a normal full moon, coming within 221,681 miles of Earth. The ideal time to view the super moon will be shortly after moonrise. If it’s a cloudy night, the Virtual Telescope Project in Rome, Italy, will broadcast the super moon’s rise in real time, beginning around 7 p.m. EST.
