Enjoy The Beauty of Nature by Celebrating January’s Full Wolf Moon!

The first Full Moon of the new year is called the Wolf Moon, named for the winter howling of wolves.

For a thousand years astronomers across the Northern Hemisphere have used this name to mark the passage of time. Take a peek out your window January 17 starting at 6:48pm to catch a glimpse!

The reason the first full moon is named for wolves is that the nocturnal activity of wolves is greatly heightened during the winter months. The icy weather of January is when wolves are at their most comfortable and energetic. You may hear their echoing communication among their pack mates, indicating when it is time to play and when it is time to go out and hunt for a meal. Cast your gaze upwards this January 17 to enjoy the beauty of the Full Wolf Moon!
