Super Snow Moon Coming Into SeaTac Over Rainier

On Monday this week flying home from Los Angeles, we saw from our window the moon at it's closest orbit. Its size was a shock, flying with us mile after mile smiling a celestial welcome. We lost it when we dropped below the clouds, but the sight of our wings brushing the top of the great mountain at sunset, with the goddess of the night sky smiling down was a vision of grace.

“In other words, it’s a full moon near perigee, or closest to Earth for this month. This February 2019 full moon reaches its exact full phase closer to the time of perigee than any other full moon this year. Hence the year’s closest supermoon.“
