Sorry but you probably will not see the 'super snow moon' in UK tonight

You might not be able to see the ‘super snow moon’ tonight because of the weather.
Many of us could miss out on the brilliantly named astronomical spectacle due to thick cloud.
The best chance of catching the natural phenomenon will be in the south-east of the country.
A Met Office spokesperson said: ‘The best chance to see the supermoon will be in places like London, Kent and Essex.
‘Be there in the early evening before 10pm for the best views.’

The supermoon looks like this just in case you don’t get to see it (Picture: EPA)It’s predicted to be the biggest and brightest supermoon of 2019 so that should help people see it when the cloud thins out in some areas.
Those living north of Scotland in Shetland and Orkney are also expected to have good views of the supermoon but they also have to watch out for thickening cloud.
Tonight will be wet and windy night across many northern and western parts of the UK, with the rain heavy over western upslopes.
It will be mostly dry elsewhere with only cloud to worry about, although there will be some clear spells.
It will be a milder night for many than recent days so that should make it easier to get out to see the spectacle.

Another pic of a supermoon (Picture: PA)The supermoon happens when the moon’s orbit brings it closest to the Earth (its perigee) and that coincides with the lunar cycle’s full moon.
This makes it appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual.
Despite appearing bigger the moon isn’t actually that much closer to Earth and just appears so.
If the phenomenon takes place in February it’s called the super snow moon because it takes place in a cold period.
