Wolf Moon

Tonight's Full Moon is traditionally called the
Full Wolf Moon by the Native Americans of the eastern and northern parts of the United States. They named it for the wolf packs howling hungrily in this lean and cold month.

It is spectacular, and the closest full moon of the year. Get outside for a moment and enjoy it!


  1. I saw it in the Western sky around 6:45 this morning. It was awe inspiring as it was the first time I ever saw a full moon that was so Huge not long before it set. Thanks for the name for it.

  2. You are welcome, Louise! I'll ntry to remember to post the names of the other full moons as they roll around, but no promises as I have CRS, LOL.


I'd love to hear what you think about my posts! We all learn together.
