Will you be able to see the ‘Snow Moon’ over our region tonight?

Will you be looking out for the Snow Moon tonight?

We’ve already had blood moons and blue moons in recent months but did you know that tonight will see a ‘snow’ moon grace the skies.

So why is it called the snow moon? Well it’s the only full moon of the month and February typically sees the highest average snowfall according to the Met Office.

Another interesting fact is that since the lunar cycle is about 29 days long, February has no full moon once almost every 19 years.

And the Met Office is forecasting clear or mildly cloudy skies for most of the UK this evening, making it a good night to catch a glimpse of the full ‘Snow Moon.’
