Super Wolf Moon
Yet Another Good Reason to Go Out at Night
This week we had the first full moon of the year, the “Wolf Moon”, named after the howling wolves that would often be heard outside Native American villages.
As luck would have it this moon was also a Supermoon; a full moon that occurs when the Moon is near its closest orbital approach to Earth. Because it's so close to Earth, a Supermoon looks ~16% brighter than an average full moon.
Although nighttime temperatures have been below zero here in New England, I took the opportunity to get out in the local woods and take some photos of the moon on a very cold, clear, crisp night.
