The term "snow moon" refers to a full moon occurring during the month of February.

On Tuesday 19th February, the full moon will be the biggest and brightest of 2019 because the moon's orbit is set to be at its closest to the earth at around 356,800km (221,700 miles). Clouds permitting, India should get a good view of the event.
