The Full Moon in January is called the Wolf Moon. Because according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, “The wolves do tend to howl more often during winter months, and generally howl to define territory, locate pack members, and gather for hunting”.
I used my Nikon D7100 camera with the AF-S Nikkor 55-300mm 1:4.5-5.6 GED VR zoom lens for the following photograph mosaic of the phases of January’s Moon. It’s suppose to rain and be cloudy all next week in Eastern Carolina, so I might not get a chance to photograph only more Moon phases.
