Clear skies over Ottawa this weekend provided spectacular views of a mid-winter full moon.

The February full moon goes by different names in different parts of the world, but in Ottawa it’s known as the Snow Moon.

(That, despite the fact that when night skies are clear enough to see a winter moon clearly, it’s often too dry/cold to snow too much. But we digress…)

Regardless of how your visit lines up to the moon calendar, if you want a glimpse of the moon in all its glory, Ottawa delivers.

A giant moon model hangs in the Museum of Nature‘s iconic atrium, known as the Queens’ Lantern.

Stargazers and astronomy fans have plenty of like-minded ‘friends’ in the Ottawa area.

Capital Concierge can help you make the most of these and other opportunities to gaze upward, escape the steely bonds – at least mentally, and enjoy an out-of-this-world experience whilst here in Ottawa. Get in touch today.
