    SNOW MOON AND JUPITER: There's a full Moon this week, and according to folklore it has a special name: the Snow Moon, so-called because northern snow often falls most heavily in February. This year the Snow Moon is in conjunction with Jupiter. Look for the duo rising together in the east just after sunset on Feb. 3rd.

    'It was an amazing show," says photographer Marketa S Murray. "The auroras were south, north ... all over the sky!"
