Steve Leimberg captured these two photos of the February 8, “Snow Moon.,”  so named because many areas have snow on the ground at this time of year. The February full moon is also called the “Hunger Moon” named by North American tribes due to scarce food sources and hard hunting conditions during mid-winter.
