It appeared about 10% larger than an average full moon on account of being relatively close to Earth, just 221,681 miles (356,761 kilometres) away.

People across BC made sure to get out and catch a view of its captivating appearance.

Monster Moon🌖⛰ . Last night's moonrise over Vancouver. This is the Waning Gibbous of the Super Snow Full Moon at 98% illumination. I was surprised at the size of this monster as it peeked out from behind Blanchard Peak in the Golden Ears Provincial Park. Looking across English Bay at English Bay Beach and the West End of Vancouver. From where I stood, the Shaw Tower was 7.5km (4.7 miles) away from me. The peak was 53km (33 miles) away. Captured with a telephoto lens from Spanish Banks Far West in Point Grey, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada ~ February 20, 2019 🌚 . This is a single shot photo with only the brightness of the moon reduced to show clarity and how it looked to the naked eye in real life. It was a great show even though I was a bit disappointed the sky was cloudy the previous night for the full moon at 100% illumination. . . . . . . . #WaningGibbous #Supermoon #FullSnowMoon #FullMoon #EnglishBay #Vancouver @Vancouver_Canada #Canada #VeryVancouver #VisitaVancouver #MixVancouver #CuriocityVan #DailyHiveVan #VancouverIsAwesome #IGersVancouver #VancityBuzz #VancityFeature #WanderVancouver #Photos604 #604Now #HelloBC #ExploreBC #ExploreCanada #TheGlobeWanderer #ImagesOfCanada #EnjoyCanada #CanonCanada #ShareCanGEO #TourCanada #GeorgiaStraight
