There May Have Been Howling

Last night we watched the "Wolf Moon" rise from behind the mountains. In the background you could hear dogs, coyotes yipping away. I am sure somewhere there were wolves howling. The great horned owls called to each other. It was a lovely way to spend the evening.

The "Wolf Moon" is accredited with getting it's name from the Algonquin tribe. It is said, that the wolves howl as they are hunting in the hard winter.

This is the first full moon of 2015. The month of January, Venus and Mercury can be seen in a conjunction. When two planets, in this case, ascend in the same sky. This should be visible through January 15th. As the moon wanes, Jupiter will make an appearance.

I love that I can go stand out back and watch the moon rise, the sun rise and to the front see the sunset behind Camelback Mountain. This is the way to get a little inspiration for the new year.
