Be cautious viewing Snow Moon

The night skies will be more lit up over Door and Kewaunee counties as the Snow Moon shines this weekend.   That also comes with a warning.  The Snow Moon, which astronomers call a super moon, will be the closest to the earth during its orbit.  Dave Lenius, President of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society, says there may not be ideal weather even though the Snow Moon is easily visible to the naked eye.  Lenius also says you don't necessarily need a telescope to get a good view, though he recommends caution if you use it.



The Snow Moon received its name from Native American tribes.  Peak viewing is expected to be around 1:30 AM Sunday.
