Full moon rising! Look for it! "The January 2015 full moon is the first full moon after the December 21 solstice. In North America, we often this full moon the Wolf Moon, Old Moon or Moon After Yule. Astronomically speaking, the moon is full at the moment that it’s most opposite the sun in its orbit (180 from the sun in celestial or ecliptic longitude). For general reference, however, we can say the moon is full all night tonight, lighting up the nighttime from dusk until dawn." This picture is the same moon, tonight, in Italy.
