PORTLAND, Ore. — The Snow Moon was in full glory Saturday night, shining big and bright over parts of Oregon and Southwest Washington.

KGW viewers shared photos of the moon with us via social media and by texting the photos to us at 503-226-5111. See the photo gallery of YOUR PHOTOS below!

KGW Meteorologist Rod Hill said Native American tribes referred to the second full moon of each year as the Snow Moon "because the moonlight typically reflected from fields of snow in the month of February."

Although the Snow Moon's peak is Saturday night, Hill said the moon will still be bright and beautiful on Sunday, when the skies are even clearer.
