Golden Glow Full Moon Was Nature’s Valentine Gift


A SIGHT OF WONDER – February full moons are known as “Snow Moons” because the heaviest North American snows fall during this time of year, the Mother Nature Network reported Friday (Feb. 14, 2014). This Valentine’s Day full moon, which was visible anywhere in Greater Pottstown’s cold and clear skies, is also known as the “Full Hunger Moon” because food was scarce and hunting was difficult for ancient tribes during this month, the network added. It reportedly hit full phase Friday at 6:53 p.m. and, depending on where and when you saw it, had a almost golden glow.
