Moonrise over Claremont

Although our full moon was technically on February 25, it still has made quite a presence at night since then. The February full moon is called the Full Snow Moon because it’s traditionally the month of heaviest snowfall. It’s also something most Claremonters don’t worry about unless hitting the ski slopes. Native Americans also called it the Hunger Moon because it was so difficult to hunt during the month. This photo was taken along Base Line Road at the 210 freeway overpass. Our next full moon is due March 25. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
