February's Super Snow Moon!

February's full moon will light up the skies as it will be the biggest supermoon of the year.

A supermoon happens during this full moon because it will be closest in its orbit to Earth.

If you want to check this awesome moon out, look to the skies this evening (Tuesday 19th).

So why is February's supermoon a Snow Moon?

Well, each month the full moon carries a different name. This is because many, many years ago, lunar months were associated with the changing season. This moon was given the name "snow moon" because it was the month where heavy snowfall was most likely.
