The sky will sparkle tonight as the popular "snow moon" graces the sky.

After a weekend of mildly rare temperatures and melting snow packs, it's almost hard to believe we are in late February.

Typically February is known for  bitter cold and heavy snow.  That's where the  "snow moon" get its one of a kind name. This unique and only full moon for February will beam across the the North America skies tonight. Also some Native American tribes have called it the Hunger Moon because harsh winter weather made hunting tough.

The big question is will we see this lovely sight across Northern Ohio?

We'll see a few clouds that may obscure the view after sunset, but the key word is "few!"  Many of going out should be able to see a clear view of the snow moon that only graces the sky on the second month every year.

The full moon will materialized at 1:19 pm but will still look full when the sun goes down.

ENJOY!
