A 'snow moon' is visible from the Hudson Valley and will peak early Sunday morning.

The snow moon will be in effect all weekend and weather permitting, will be most visible at its apex at 2:34 AM Sunday morning.

According to the Farmers Almanac, northeastern Native Americans referred to the second full moon of winter as the snow moon because of heavy snow in February.

There is some debate in the scientific community as to whether this moon can be classified as a 'super moon'. Some feel that the first supermoon of the year will occur in March.

Will you be out checking out the snow moon this weekend?
