There’s a lot of hype surrounding Friday’s full moon, but nope, we won’t see the penumbral lunar eclipse in North America — though we’ve included a handy online link to watch it over Rome, Italy — but a bright sky beckons if you want to start 2020 off with a howl.

And speaking of howling and moons, did you know that January’s full moon is called the wolf moon? There are at least a couple of theories, which we’ll get into, but if you’re going to howl at the moon, you need to know how to dress.
In many areas of the country, the weather has been freakishly warm, flirting with both daytime and nighttime high temperature records during what is typically one of the coldest months of the year. That in itself is worth howling about.
You’ll need to know the best times to howl, dance or whatever primordial tradition to celebrate the big, bright orb in the sky. That’s moonrise and moonset.
And if you want to get in the mood for all that lunar revelry, check out the penumbral lunar eclipse — an imperfect alignment of the sun, Earth and moon that casts a shadow over the moon’s face — via an online feed from the Virtual Telescope Project, beginning at 6 a.m. Eastern Time Friday. The telescope is trained over the skyline of Rome.
So, why is this weekend’s attraction called the wolf moon?
