SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The last weekend of February begins with a bright full moon, the snow moon, shining in the sky.
February’s full moon is called the Snow Moon because it’s the middle of winter, and for many parts of the country, this is typically the snowiest time of year.
Catch the snow moon as it rises around nightfall on Friday, Feb. 26. When it's low on the horizon, the moon will look bigger than normal, potentially making for a good backdrop for stunning winter photos, according to AccuWeather.
