The Old Farmer's Almanac notes that the Wishram people of the Pacific Northwest referred to the Snow Moon as "Shoulder to Shoulder Around the Fire Moon", and that the Cherokee people of the Southeast referred to it as the "Bone Moon".
The event was not fully visible in New Zealand, however the Super New Moon is likely to be as large and bright for us as it is will be to the US.
A supermoon phenomenon occurs when a full moon, on its oval-shaped orbit, is at its closest to us, known as perigee, which is about 356,000 kilometres as measured from the centre of the Earth to the centre of the moon. A fun fact that you'd like to know is that the different tribes have their own names for February's moon.
February 19's full moon is the second lunar spectacle in a supermoon trilogy.
The attractive moon will reach its closest point to the earth at 9.06am in the United Kingdom, and will be at its fullest at 3.53pm. The farthest point of the ellipse is called the apogee.
The first supermoon was the "Blood Wolf Super Moon" on January 21 and the third will take place on March 21.

Incidentally, the weather looks pretty mixed over the next few days, so it's still a lottery as to whether you'll actually see this special moon.
As NASA explains on its website: "When a full moon appears at perigee [its closest point to Earth] it is slightly brighter and larger than a regular full moon - and that's where we get a "super moon".
Instead, you'll need to wait until after the moon rises at 5.11pm.
On February 19, the moon will be 221,734 miles from Earth, as per EarthSky.
In general the supermoon will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than the average moon.
In other parts of the world, the Full Moon will also peak at a different time, so check your local lunar calendar before you head out to see the Supermoon. The term went viral in March 2011 when some incorrectly speculated that the moon's closeness to Earth may have affected the giant quake that hit Japan that month.
