Full moons have names for each month, and February’s is typically called the “snow moon” because February is the month that typically gets the most snow. Because the lunar moon cycle is 29 days, every 19 years February has no full moon at all.

Not true for this year. Not only will February have a “snow moon,” but on the same day a penumbral lunar eclipse is set to occur. This happens when the sun, earth, and moon align in a straight line.

It’ll be visible to most of the world (but apparently Hawaii is going to miss out):
The moon will first enter Earth’s shadow at 5:32 p.m. EST (2232 GMT), and its moonlight will slowly but surely grow dimmer for a little over 2 hours. After the eclipse peaks at 7:43 p.m. EST (0034 GMT on Feb. 11), the bright glow of the full moon will take about another 2 hours to return to normal. The moon will be completely outside of the penumbral shadow by 9:55 p.m. EST (0255 GMT on Feb. 11).
Interestingly, just 10 minutes after the full moon peaks, so will the eclipse.

Also on the same day, Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdušáková, a periodic comet discovered in 1948 dubbed recently “The New Year Comet,” is scheduled to pass and be visible to the naked eye like it is every five years.

The fact that these three events are happening on the same day is causing some people to completely freak out.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
