Full "Snow" Moon makes it's annual appearance


Tonight's full moon is referred to as the full snow moon, as typically the heaviest snows fall in February. The Full Moon peaked at 18:20 UTC or 12:20 PM CST. 

Native American tribes call this the Full Hunger Moon as hunting became difficult leading to food becoming scarce. 

The Wishram tribe called the moon the Shoulder to Shoulder Moon around the Fire to fight off the cold. The Cherokee Nation called it the Bone Moon as there was little food so some people gnawed on bones and ate bone marrow soup.
