The Snow Moon Is Coming! The Best Times To See This Weekend’s Full Moon.

Are you ready to witness the Snow Moon this weekend? Keep your eyes peeled on February 24, 2024, because that’s when this year’s second full moon will appear in the sky. What’s so special about this celestial event? Well, for one thing, it’s going to be the smallest full moon of the year. That’s because it will also be at the farthest point from Earth in its orbit. It’s pretty much the opposite of a supermoon, which occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth, making it look particularly large.

So, how can you get the best possible view of the Snow Moon tomorrow? Forbes tells us that the ideal time to see the full moon on Saturday, February 24, 2024 is when it rises in the early evening. If you want to enhance your experience, go somewhere that allows you to see the horizon unobstructed while facing east.
