Snow Moon This Weekend!

One of the largest full moons of 2020 is happening this weekend!  The Snow Moon!

That’s the name of the full moon that will be lighting up the night sky on February 8th and 9th (Saturday and Sunday.)

NASA says the so-called “snow moon” will reach its peak at 3:33 a.m. Atlantic time on Sunday (February 9th.)

Experts say this qualifies as a Supermoon, which is a phrase coined by NASA that is “when a full moon appears at its closest point to Earth and therefore seems slightly brighter and larger than a regular full moon”.

Hopefully the skies are clear enough for us to see it this weekend!
