Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The full moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are opposite sides of the Earth at the same time. This lunar phase (29.53 days/cycle) is known by many different names and by many cultures, religions and languages, depending on the month it occurs. The mid-winter full moon occurs in February (Avunnivik - Inuit) and is known as the Wolf Moon (English), Snow Moon (Algonquian), Magh Poornima (Hindu), and Navam Poya (Buddhist)..

The moon for the month of February is at its fullest at 12:36 am on Friday February 18th.
On February 17th, the sun sets at 5:37 pm and the moon rises at 5:17 pm.

Thus, the best night to view the moon at its fullest as it rises is the evening before. Come join us for a meet-n-greet in the evening and to watch the full moon rise over the mountains. The event begins at 4:47 (thirty minutes before the moon rises) and the event will end at 6:47 (ninety minutes after the moon rises). Please do bring your bugs and coins for trading, discovering, or just to show them off. There are no food or beverages nearby, so if it's a little chilly BYOHC and dress appropriately for the temperature and weather conditions as this event is outdoors, rain or shine.

Don't be late or you just might miss out on this magical time as the sun sets and the full moon rises.
