MILWAUKEE — You can catch a glimpse of the Super "Snow" Moon if you're out tonight.

It's a "Supermoon" because it's a full moon at perigee, or closest point in its orbit around the earth.

It's a "Snow Moon" because Native American tribes in North America gave it the nickname for the snowy month of February.
