An Eerie Golden Glow Twixt Skeletal Trees: January’s Full Wolf Moon

January’s Wolf Moon is full today —reaching it’s peak at 2:30am ET— and will rise this evening at 5:17pm ET (click links in the paragraph below for moon rise and set in your geographic area). I’ve been enjoying many celestial pleasures this month, including last week’s spectacular Quadrantid meteor shower (read more about this astrological event —and mark your calendar for more—by clicking over to Space.com here) and the early evening beauty of our nearby neighbor, Venus as she hovers at the horizon.

Also worth keeping in mind,  The Old Farmer’s Almanac’s moon page is a great source of lunar lore, celestial facts —including a moon phase calendar— and traditional sowing/harvesting information for those following a lunar planting schedule. You can learn more about January’s Wolf Moon —and watch a video— by clicking through to The Old Farmer’s Almanac site here.
