The full moon on February 19 with the biggest apparent diameter, will also the biggest one of the 12 times of full moon in 2019.

The optimum observation time will be around 23:54 on February 19.

The round moon would foil atmosphere for the Chinese Lantern Festival as various shapes and sizes lanterns are hung in the streets at night for people to enjoy themselves.

The “supermoon” could put on three times this year: on January 21, on February 19 and on March 21.
