The Wolf Moon, the largest, brightest moon of 2010, 14% bigger in diameter and 30% brighter than our lesser full moons (see why here).

The Wolf Moon was named by Native Americans for the wolves howling during cold winter nights. It is also known as The Old Moon, or the After Yule Moon.

The photo was taken from our deck last night at 9:19.

Canon S10IS---Hand held, full zoom (560mm), 1/500th second, f/5.7, ISO 80---cropped.

So that is why I woke up with that moon shining in my face about 3:00 the other night! I need to get drapes.

I was wondering why it looked so big as it appeared over the horizon as I was driving home last night. It was a beautiful moonlit night here.

Either that, or go with it and howl at the moon ;~)


Yeah, as beautiful as it was in the night sky, I wish I could've seen it on the horizon!


Thank you, and you have a beautiful blog!

It was amazing over here in UK too. A cloudless still night, and people were nudging each other to go outside and look. One to remember.
