Super Snow Moon

The Super Snow Moon rises Tuesday night behind the McCullough Peaks antenna towers in Cody. The term "Super Snow Moon" refers to the largest full moon of the year, which occurs in February. At that time, the moon appears about 10 percent larger than normal as it approaches the closest point in its orbit of the earth. (Photo by Leon Jenson for the Cody Enterprise)
