A full moon was spotted over the Sea Mills neighborhood of Bristol, England, on Sunday, February 5.

According to NASA, February’s full moon is also known by several other names, such as Snow Moon or Storm Moon.

“The Maine Farmers’ Almanac began publishing “Indian” names for full Moons in the 1930s and these names are now widely known and used," NASA said. “According to this almanac, as the full Moon in February the tribes of the northeastern United States called this the Snow Moon or the Storm Moon because of the heavy snows in this season.”
