Did you miss “Xueyue” last night? There are two other opportunities to attract attention.
The second full moon of each year, called the “Snow Moon”, will be seen in the Chicago area this weekend.
This is where and when I saw it.
When can I see the “snow” moon?
According to NBC 5 meteorologists, although the moon’s highest illuminance is at 2:17 AM on Saturday, the moon can be seen every night of the night.
Where should I look for the moon?
When looking east, “Snow Moon” is likely to be visible in the night sky. According to the latest forecast model, the sky should be mostly clear from Saturday evening to early Sunday morning, with a chance of rain.
Why do we call it the “snow”
“Xueyue” is named after the “Farmer’s Yearbook”, which states that heavy snowfall usually occurs in February. According to meteorologists, February has historically been the snowiest month in the United States.
The other full moons of February are also appropriately named Groundhog moons, which set in early February, along with bald eagle moons and black bear moons.
The NBC 5 storm team said that due to excessive snow and insufficient food in February, the Cherokee tribe also referred to the full moon as the “hungry moon.”
Although there was heavy snow for most of February, it is expected that sunshine and warm temperatures will reach the Chicago area this weekend.
According to the NBC No. 5 meteorologist, the temperature may rise below 50 degrees Celsius on Saturday, bringing most of the sunny and “spring” weather to the area.
Areas north of Chicago may see highs at highs in the 1940s, while areas further south may see highs at lows in the 1950s.
According to the latest weather report, the area continued to have a partially clear sky on Sunday, with the high point being the low point in the 1950s.
