THE SECOND FULL MOON OF THE FIRST QUARTER     ..   The Second full moon of the 1st Quarter occurs in February in the Northern hemisphere,   August in the Southern.     It is known as the Snow Moon,   Mid-Winter Moon,   Candles Moon,   Hunger Moon,   or Magh Poornima (Hindu).     The first quarter starts after the Winter Solstice and ends with the Vernal Equinox.         A Full moon is a lunar phase that occurs when the Moon is on the opposite side of Earth as the Sun.     When viewed from Earth,   the hemisphere of the Moon that is facing the Earth (the near side)   is almost fully illuminated by the Sun   and appears round.     The opposite hemisphere of the Moon,   which is not visible from Earth (the dark side),   remains completely unilluminated.     Many (Lunar) calenders are based on the phases of the moon   including the Cherokee (Ani-yvnwiya),   Celtic,   Chinese (Traditional),   Germanic,   Hebrew,   Hindu,   Islamic,   Mayan,   Neo-Pagan,   Thai,   and Tibetan.     Full moons have deep folklore associations with insomnia,   insanity,   magic,   and lycanthropy (i.e. Werewolves).     The terms Lunacy or Lunatic are a result of this associasion.         Full Moon's occur at the same time everywhere on Earth,   however   the local time will depend on the time-zone the viewer is in.     The times are based on the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC),   so you would have to adjust for your time.     If a person was in Chicago, USA (UTC -6),   a Full Moon at 5:38 am UTC would actually occur on January 26th at 11:38 pm.         Because the time of the full moon is based in the UTC (0) time zone,   other time zones (especially the far east time zones of UTC -12 and UTC +14)   may experience the full moon on a day earlier or later.   The full moon happens at the same moment everywhere,   but due to the different time zones it can spans three days.   ..
