Rochester Patch reader Christopher Oskoian captured this scene Tuesday night.
February's full moon — known as the "Snow Moon" — caused Rochester to stop and enjoy the view on Tuesday night. Rochester Patch reader Christopher Oskoian captured this scene Tuesday night. "Picture doesn't do it justice," he wrote. "Couldn't get the whole effect of the beautiful color." The moon was photographed using a T2i 75-300mm lens. The full moon in February is traditionally called the "Snow Moon" because the heaviest snows of the year often fall during this month, according to Space.com. The moon is also sometimes called the "Full Hunger Moon," because hunting is often difficult in February, making food scarce for ancient tribes. Did you photograph Tuesday night's moon?

Bryan Clifford took this panoramic photo with his phone looking north from outside the Rochester Road Starbucks.
Here's a picture you don't see every day: a double rainbow, practically from start to finish. Bryan Clifford, who works at the Starbucks on South Boulevard in Troy, looked north during a recent rain vs. sunshine battle and captured this double rainbow over Rochester Hills. "I took it with my iPhone on an app called AutoStitch," Clifford said. "It was a series of nine photos and it stitched them all together. It was the only way I could capture the grand scale of it. "Everyone else was just getting a portion of the rainbow, I was able to capture the whole thing." Clifford worked at the former Starbucks in downtown Rochester. He is a lifelong resident of the city.
