Snow Moon (Feb 9th): Have you ever seen a snow moon before? It happens every year! The first full moon of February is called a “snow moon” because the country tends to get the most snowfall in February. The moon will reach its “peak fullness” and will reach the highest point of the sky during this time. Around 2:34am Sunday, you will be able to see the moon at its fullest. Go out, snap some pictures, and check out more information HERE.
