The Wolf Moon

Last Friday the first full moon in 2020 occurred. The Full Moon in January is the wolf moon named after howling wolves, which may stem from the Anglo-Saxon lunar calendar. Other names: Moon After Yule, Old Moon, Ice Moon, and Snow Moon. I shot the video a couple of years ago and reprocessed with the iMovie editor. Enjoy.

  1. That’s a fine video. I’ve never heard wolves howling, as far as I know, but I’ve heard coyotes, and it’s similar enough for me. About a year ago, there was quite a hubbub here over the possibility that red wolves had been found on Galveston Island — in my county. This Smithsonian article gives a brief overview.

    The next time I see a full moon and hear enthusiastic howling, I’ll surely think of your video, Peter.

  2. Peter- loved the video. But, unlike others that commented I knew you had dubbed the howls. Hearing wolves in the wild howl at the moon is a bit different as it echoes off the crystal snow of a clear night with a full moon. When I grew up we had timber wolves in Northern Minnesota and when the Wolf Moon was out even at minus temperatures we would stand outside and listen. It is a sound that is like hearing a loon call.
