“Wolf Moon” Tonight!

– – The full moon on the night of January 29th will be the biggest and brightest full moon of the year.  It is also known as The Wolf Moon, a name dating back to Native American culture and the notion that hungry wolves howled at the moon on cold winter nights!  What a beautiful image…except for the wolves being hungry, of course!

Tonight, the moon will appear 14 percent wider and 30 percent brighter than lesser full moons of the year, which is caused by a full moon coinciding with the moon reaching its perigee, or closest point to us...

…so have yourselves a howling good time!

    I’ll say it was bright. When I went to bed, last night, I had to triple-check that the front yard lamp hadn’t been left on, by mistake!

    I think it was also the title of a World War II spy-novel by Peter McCammon, back in the Eighties.
