"Snow Moon" from mcrtchly Contract pics
Picture: Snow Moon (Contract pics)

Snow Moon rise over Aghla More, Donegal
The full moon in February is called a Snow Moon. This year the Snow Moon occurred when the moon is at the apogee of it's orbit (furthest from Earth). This photo was captured rising above Aghla More on when descending from the Derryveaghs. Aptly the Derryveaghs and Aghlas were mantled in snow.
