Full Snow Moon - OFA

In February 2021, the full Moon is called the Full Snow Moon! This Moon follows January’s Full Wolf Moon.

Why is it called the Full Snow Moon? Traditionally, February is one of the snowiest months of winter. On average, February is the month when the United States receives the most snow. 

When to See It: This year, the Full Snow Moon reaches peak fullness in the early morning hours of Saturday, February 27. It will reach peak illumination at 3:19 A.M. Eastern Time on Saturday. For the best view of this full Moon, go outside the night before (Friday, February 26) and look up!
