Full moon plus Jupiter on February 3-4, 2015
Tonight, and for the next several nights, the planet Jupiter should be yours to behold, given a clear sky after the sun sets. That’s even if you don’t know your cardinal directions – or if reading sky charts is not your forte. On the nights of Feburary 2, 3 and 4, 2015, the moon will be near Jupiter in the night sky. And Jupiter is now nearly as bright as it will be for this entire year. The result is a beautiful sky scene. Don’t miss it!
Simply look for the full-looking moon as darkness falls. The moon may appear full to the eye after the sun sets on February 2, but it won’t be astronomically full – most directly opposite the sun – until February 3. No matter. Just find tonight’s full-looking moon, and the dazzling star-like object near it will be the king planet Jupiter.
If you miss out this evening because of cloudy skies, try again tomorrow as the full moon couples up even more closely with Jupiter on February 3. Miss them both nights?
Then try February 4, when the moon still be nearby.

~February is the month of the Full Snow Moon~
Usually the heaviest snows fall in February. Hunting becomes very difficult, and hence to some Native American tribes this was the Hunger Moon.
~Why Native Americans Named the Moons~
The early Native Americans did not record time by using the months of the Julian or Gregorian calendar. Many tribes kept track of time by observing the seasons and lunar months, although there was much variability. For some tribes, the year contained 4 seasons and started at a certain season, such as spring or fall. Others counted 5 seasons to a year. Some tribes defined a year as 12 Moons, while others assigned it 13. Certain tribes that used the lunar calendar added an extra Moon every few years, to keep it in sync with the seasons.
