Have you seen the moon tonight? I sure wish that I could! It will be the biggest moon of the year. It is called the Wolf Moon.
Our skies are cloudy tonight. I hope that tomorrow the sky will be clear. Then I can see the Wolf Moon, too!
Why is it called the Wolf Moon? Long ago, Native Americans named each moon of the year. They named January's moon the Wolf Moon.
If you would like to take a picture of the Wolf Moon, remember NASA's OWN program. (See my old post called Beautiful Moon to learn more.) Just go to http://mo-www.harvard.edu/OWN/ to use their telescope to take your photo. You will need to type in your email address and a little personal information, so please ask your mom, dad, or teacher to help you.
PS Here's the photo that we took last night with NASA's OWN program. This moon makes me want to howl!!!
