Feedback and Notes

Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

The First Full Moon of 2017 Will Rise on Thursday Night—And It's Going to Be Spectacular

The Wolf Moon only happens once a year.

If you were excited about getting a glimpse of September's Harvest Moon eclipse, you're not going to miss 2017's first full moon on Thursday, Jan. 12. January's full moon — also known as the Wolf Moon — was named by Native American tribes, according to .

Throughout the year, if you notice people referring to the full moons with a range of nicknames, it's because tribes gave each month's full moon its own name in order to keep track of the seasons, which is pretty genius, if you ask us. Some of the year's other full moon monikers include Snow Moon, Flower Moon, Strawberry Moon, and Hunter's Moon.

But that begs the question: Why Wolf Moon for the month of January? During the cold, wintery month, hungry wolves would often gather around Native American villages and howl at the moon — makes sense!

In order to catch Thursday's moon at its brightest, advises heading outside between midnight and sunrise to witness the Wolf Moon in full effect.

For fun I broke out my telescope to watch Venus traverse the sun a few years ago.
