This Super Snow Moon was just one of three Supermoons to lift the late-night gloom this year.

In the northern hemisphere, it was referred to as the "snow moon", a name invented by Native Americans and Europeans because February is the month associated with heavy snowfall.

The super snow moon is the second of three supermoon events in the first three months of the year - a packed lunar calendar for 2019, which marks the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, the mission that took the first humans to the moon.

During such an event the moon looks to be about 14 per cent bigger and about 30 per cent brighter compared with when it's at the farthest point in its elliptical orbit around Earth.

The phenomenon is not actually that rare, and March's is the third in a trilogy that began with January's full moon, and included a second on 19 February. So, whether you missed out on this lunar spectacular or you want to relive the moment, check out these gorgeous, professional photos of the super snow moon from Italy to France to New York City.
