A full moon rises, FEbruary 23, 2016, in Coden, Alabama. This moon is known as the snow moon, so named by Native American Indians because the heaviest snows typically fall in February. It is also known as the hunger moon, because hunting was typically hardest in February. Cherokee Indians called it the bone moon, because food was scarce, forcing people to subsist by gnawing on bones and making bone marrow soup. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
