Full Moon Friday-SNOW MOON

Sarah Josephine called and asked if I'd seen the moon tonight. No, so I went out at 5:30 before supper and looked east. She's never seen it so BIG, but because I live out in the country and can see the eastern horizon, October is when the moon is REALLY HUGE! Neither shot is what I'd like to share, but is the best the little camera could do. If you click on the pictures twice, they can be enlarged.
"The full moon of February, known as the Wolf Moon, will arrive Friday (Feb. 18).

Each full moon during the year has a traditional name in different human cultures. February's full moon is best known as the Wolf Moon among some Native American tribes.

The Algonquian peoples of North America called it the Snow Moon." Information from Space.com.Along with the wind, I believe this is why the kids at school were so "------". I wonder what they were like after school at home?! ;D

The moon has been beautiful - I usually see it in the west at about 3:30 am. It shines in and hits our dresser mirror - wakes me up, but I don't mind!! Enjoy your long weekend. Sally

You taught me something new tonight! I had never heard of the Snow Moon.
I will definitely go out to see the moon tomorrow night.
Hugs,
