"This year's New Year's Eve, the moon and the lights remain the same", Feb. 19 is the Lantern Festival of 1911, when the second "Super Moon" of this year will appear in the sky, and it is also the "largest full moon" of this year. A full moon is more festive. < p > < strong > This year's "biggest full moon" illuminates the Lantern Festival < / strong > < / P > < p > Super Moon is a relatively common astronomical phenomenon, which is accurately called "the nearest new moon" in astronomy. In an interview with the media, Hu Fanghao, director of science at Zijin Mountain Observatory, Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that the orbit of the moon is elliptical, the farthest point from the earth in the ellipse is called apogee, and the nearest point is perigee. "Super Moon refers to the full moon at perigee, which theoretically looks about 14% larger and brighter than the full moon at apogee, but the difference in size is generally not visible to the naked eye."

p>Super Moon occurs every year, sometimes more than once. This year, the Super Moon will appear three times in a row, on January 21, February 19 and March 21, respectively. The full moon on February 19 is also the largest apparent diameter of the 12 full moons this year. It is the largest full moon this year. When the moon and the sun are on both sides of the earth and the Yellow Meridian of the moon and the sun are 180 degrees apart, the moon at this time is the fullest, which is also called the "full moon" from the earth. In fact, the full moon may appear on the fourteenth, fifteenth, sixteenth or seventeenth day of the lunar calendar every month, so it is often said that the fifteenth moon is sixteen rounds. This year's Lantern Festival is exactly the fifteenth round moon.

According to the precise astronomical calculation, the distance between the lunar perigee and the lunar perigee at 17:3 on February 19 is only 356,800 kilometers, which is the closest moment of the lunar year to the earth. At this time, the apparent diameter of the moon is the largest. At 23:54, the moon is divided into "look", at which time the moon appears "the most round". It is known that the "Super Moon" which appeared in the sky during the Lantern Festival can be seen in China. In the eastern part of China, around 18:30 p.m. on the night of the Lantern Festival, the public can find a place with broad vision and wait for the appearance of the beautiful scenery of "Haoyue when the sky shines". The best observation time of the day is around 23:54. At that time, when the festival meets the bright moon, the festival atmosphere will be enhanced. (Reporter Wang Jun)

What is the "Super Moon"?

Super Moon is a common astronomical phenomenon, which is accurately named as "nearest point and new moon" in astronomy. The orbit of the moon is elliptical, and the farthest point from the earth in the ellipse is called apogee, and the nearest point is perigee. Super Moon is the full moon at perigee, which theoretically looks about 14% larger and brighter about 30% than the full moon at apogee. How to appreciate the Super Lantern Festival?
