Tonight's Full Moon Is a Snow Moon: How

February 27 [Wed], 2013, 13:25
For an extra-special view of tonight's (Feb. 25) full moon, don't just look out your window tune in to a live webcast of the sight from a telescope in the Canary Islands.

From our point of view on Earth, the moon will be directly opposite the sun and fully illuminated at 3:26 p.m. EST (2026 GMT). February'sis traditionally called the "Snow Moon," because the heaviest snows of the year often fall in this month in North America. Alternately, this month's moon sometimes bears the name "Full Hunger Moon," because hunting is often difficult in February and food was scarce for ancient tribes.

For more on the history of full moon nicknames, as well as the science of the moon's cycles, check out the Slooh Space Camera's live webcast today beginning at 3:30 EST. The webcast will show views from an observatory on the Spanish Canary Islands off the coast of Africa.

"Using our observatory in the Canary Islands, we will explore the Full Snow Moon, sometimes known as the Hunger Moon, with fascinating stories by astronomer Bob Berman," Slooh president Patrick Paolucci told SPACE.com.
