The weather is always worse after a full moon and the supermoons seem to exert an extra pull on the tides. The OFA prediction for the start of February is already bleak and if the start of January is any indication, this looks at least as bad.

Why is it also called the Old Moon ?
Submitted byAlmanac StaffonFebruary 8, 2016 – 9:55pm
An Old Moon usually refers to a waning crescent Moon. The Moons age each month never gets more than around 29.5 days old, but people often refer to it as old when its in the latter part of its phase.
Some Native American tribes called the January or February Moon the Old Moon. By old, they are referencing that old fellow of winter.

This is so cool because I have to write a whole paragraph on the blood moon for school.

Im not sure if this is on topic but Im an Aquarius and I honestly love the moon so much. I have a telescope and digital camera and I look at the moon as much as I can & take pictures of it. Wolves are honestly my favorite animal,and it was a coincidence that was what my moon is called. Im very independent,aloof,and I love nature. Such as the woods or lakes etc.. it kind of makes sense to me of why it is called the wolf moon. Correct me if Im wrong?

I forgot to mention. Every full moon I go out late at night by myself on the side of my house and look at the moon & see it so captivating & feel a good sensation in my eyes and my heart.

Yes, the Moon spins on its axis, completing one rotation about every 29.5 days, relative to Earth, which equals the time that it takes for it to complete one revolution (orbit) around Earth. This means that we always see essentially the same side of the Moon (except for a few factors, such as libration). The Moon used to rotate faster, but over billions of years, Earths gravity slowed it down so that it is now in synchronous rotation. This phenomenon is called tidal locking, and the process is not yet finished: Earths rotation is also slowing. If the aging Sun doesnt interfere, Earth will eventually be tidally locked with the Moon: One side of Earth will always face the same side of the Moon.

Hello friend I seen something called a white smokey substance around the full moon what its called it seems amazing and I love to see more and more today Im going to watch that but I cant see why ? Can you answer me what it is ?
Submitted byAlmanac StaffonFebruary 9, 2015 – 3:34pm
A bright Moon covered by a thin layer of high clouds can sometimes make the Moon appear wispy. The light from the Moon (actually, from the Sun that bounces to the Moon, then bounces to Earth) will reflect and refract through ice crystals in the clouds. Sometimes, this will just cause a filmy glow around the Moon; at other times, you might see a rainbow prism on the clouds or an actual lunar halo (circle of light) around the Moon. In rare cases, you might see two faded small white moons to either side of the Moon, as part of a lunar halo: these are called moon dogs (or mock moons or paraselenae), also caused by light passing through ice crystals in the atmosphere.
