‘Snow Moon’ Rises

WestportNow.com Image
The full “snow moon” rises over Westport’s Compo Beach Monday night. According to the Washington Post, naming full moons is a Native American tradition. This month’s full moon is the “snow moon” because it tends to be the coldest, snowiest month of the year. Individual tribes have their own names for each full moon moon. For example, the Comanche call the February moon the “sleet moon,” and the Lakota call it “the moon when the trees crack because of the cold.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Laurel Sheck for WestportNow.com
