The Full Snow Moon of February 2022 rises tonight!

The Snow Moon will reach its peak today (Feb. 16) and join a cluster of planets lighting up the morning sky.

The full moon, known as the Snow Moon, will be at its brightest at 11:57 a.m. EST (1657 GMT), though it will appear nearly full both the night before and the night after. And the moon isn’t the only excitement in the night sky; if you look carefully by the full moon tonight you will see the bright star Regulus in the constellation Leo, the lion.
