The February full moon is known as the Snow Moon. This is because February in North America is typically the snowiest month. The Native Americans also called it the Hunger, or Bones Moon as food stocks and hunting opportunities dwindled.
Approximately once every nineteen years the short month of February has no full moon at all, the lunar cycle being 29 days (or nights). Tonight (February 22nd 2016) the moon was shrouded by clouds, but still bright enough to shine hazily through. Here in England though, there is no snow.
