Wolf Moon aka Mini Moon - Sky Watch Friday - January 17, 2014


Alas, travel and renewing friendships and eating at wonderful restaurants has limited my
online time ( and extended my waist size ) but I am sure all you blogging folk understand.
I couldn't resist getting out of the car the other night when returning from dinner at A 
Pearl in the Grove in Dade City, Florida  as the "wolf moon", the smallest full moon of 
the year, was making its debut.  The Indians ( native American ),  of what is now
the northern and eastern United States, a few hundred years ago, to keep track of
the seasons, gave names to each recurring full moon.
