Wolf Moon...

Today like many others I was up early and off for the first day back at work after the Christmas/New Year celebrations... I got up even earlier that usual for a work day because the forecast predicted a clear sky and a good chance of taking a photo of the New Year Super Moon...

The January Full Moon is often called the Wolf Moon. Other names include Old Moon, Ice Moon, and Snow Moon, although this name is usually attributed to the February Full Moon.

While the almanac states that Wolf Moon is a Native American name, other sources claim that it has Anglo-Saxon origins. In Anglo-Saxon culture, the January Full Moon was also called the Moon after Yule, which is the time of the ancient festival celebrating the Winter Solstice around December 22nd.

It was good to go down to The J's and catch up with everyone, although there was plenty to do and the day flashed by.

The Camera Club AGM went well and I'm looking forward to the coming years activities...
