This moon photo was taken last night on February 6th, 2012. Its looks like a full moon but last night was the eve of the full February Moon which will be tonight , February 7th. 2012. The full February Moon has been given many names over the years.by North American Indian tribes named due to the weather characteristics of the season and the hardships they encountered during this time. Some of the names given to the February full moon have been: Full Snow Moon, the Hunger Moon, The Ice Moon, the Wolf Moon, the Storm Moon. Tonight will be the February Full Moon.
I used my canon zoom IS 100-400mmlens with a tv camera setting for this picture, then cropped the photo to bring it closer.
