Check out these photos below taken by Mark Hopkins in MLT of the full moon last night.
January’s full moon is called, the ‘Wolf Moon’, and our weather last night offered many opportunities to see the moon in all it’s glory. A rare opportunity during the Pacific Northwest’s winter. The thin clouds made for an eerie glow and at one point, a beautiful ring in the sky.

From the Farmer’s Almanac:
Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January’s full Moon. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Old Moon, or the Moon After Yule. …Some called it the Full Snow Moon, but most tribes applied that name to the next Moon.
