February's Snow Moon


This year we had a special event take place in the night sky on Feb.10 ! We just had an amazing Full Moon called the Snow Moon but at the same time we had a Lunar Eclipse and also had a Comet passing by.  


  This months Full Moon was named the Snow Moon many years ago because this is the month we usually get our heaviest snow. 

  Some of the Native American tribes also referred to this Moon as the Hunger Moon because it was a very hard month for the Native Americans due to the fact hunting for game becomes difficult  because of heavy snowfall that is often on the ground.
