February is here, and voting to name this month’s Full Moon has ended. Readers have overwhelmingly selected the name “Sweethearts Moon” for this month’s Full Moon, which falls on Sunday, February 28th, at 11:38 a.m.
The name “Sweethearts Full Moon” was submitted by 11 different people, the first of whom, and our winner, was Kathy Mitchell. Congratulations!
The most well known traditional name for February’s Full Moon is the “Full Snow Moon,” so called because February is the snowiest month of the year in many temperate regions. Another popular traditional names is “Hungry Moon,” because harsh weather conditions makes hunting very difficult.
Be sure to visit our “Name That Moon” Contest page between now and February 15 to submit your suggestion for March’s Full Moon!
