Despite being the quietest month for celestial events, each year in February we are graced with the Snow Moon.

The Snow Moon is the name for February’s full moon, named as such due to the month’s colder temperature and to work with the seasonal elements of the lunar calendar.

The snow moon is a breathtaking event as the moon’s appearance shines so brightly and its white, large appearance takes over the sky.

But the big question is, with the UK's February weather, can we see the Snow Moon?

How to see the Snow Moon in Scotland

According to Science Focus, the moon will appear in the night sky on Wednesday, February 16 and will be north of Regulus, the brightest star in Leo the Lion constellation.

It will reach its peak brightness at 4.56pm, following the moonrise at 4.52pm just before sunset at 5.17pm.

As always, the best chance of seeing a full moon is on a clear night away from any light pollution.

On Wednesday there is currently an amber weather warning for wind across parts of Scotland, with a yellow warning covering elsewhere in the country. Therefore it is advisable to try and catch a glimpse of the moon in a safe environment.
