The Wolf Moon

Thank you Vitit Kantabutra from Pocatello, ID for sharing the incredible shot (above) of our January 2010 "Wolf Moon" Full Moon.
Below is a shot of the Wolf Moon West Sacramento. By the time I had got my camera setup with lens, tripod, and checked the manual settings...the moon was sinking fast. I kind of liked this shot of the moon behind our neighbors tree.

The Wolf Moon is a full moon that occurs in January. The name comes from hungry wolf packs that would howl outside the villages of Native Americans. This full moon is also known as the Old Moon or the Moon After Yule.

Very cool with the tree in the foreground! Glad somebody got these shots. Our wolf moon got rained out.
