Here’s a photo of the moon I took yesterday for the Sky Sunday Challenge. The full moon in February is known as Snow Moon.
This month’s full moon is the 4th closest the moon will be to the Earth this year which mean that it is the 4th brightest and largest the moon will appear. After that, we are going to enjoy a season of 3 supermoons on March 9, April 8 and May 7.
Did you know that the Moon is drifting away from the Earth? The Moon is moving approximately 3.8 cm away from our planet every year. This is estimated to continue for around 50 billion years. By the time that happens, the Moon will be taking around 47 days to orbit the Earth instead of the current 27.3 days. source
Did you have a chance to see the moon during the weekend or was the sky cloudy in your area?
Have you had a chance to see the moon these days?
