The sky cleared last night and many were able to see February’s full moon. It was also considered a Supermoon because it is the closest the moon will be to Earth this year.

Supermoon’s are 7% larger and 16% brighter than a typical full moon. However, it is hard to tell the difference from a Supermoon and a Full moon with a normal eye. The moon will reach its peak at 10:54 AM Tuesday February 19th, when it will no longer be visible. 

February’s full moon is known as the Snow Moon, which is fitting since snow is in the forecast. Thank you all for sharing your photos with us!
