The moon, not an easy subject to photograph.
However, during last years thread; Tonight's Moon 2019; share your photos here, there were some very good photos taken and shared, so to continue the theme, I've started the 2020 thread.
Earlier tonight, the cloud was for once particularly thin, allowing the evening moon to shine through for me to grab a photo.
The full moon, which is around 10th January, and known as the Wolf Moon, the name given to the first full moon of the year, mainly because wolves are supposed to howl more with it being the mating season. Incidentally, foxes tend to be more vocal December to January, for the same reason, so I'm inclined to believe the same for wolves.

That's a cracking photo PB, did you use the new lens for that?
Unfortunately here it was cloudy at that time, though it did clear up around 17:00, and my pic was at 17:01

Thank you Wendy, nice to see you post the first Wolf Moon photo and a lovely one it is.
The first full moon of the year, is known as the Wolf Moon. It is known as the Wolf Moon, because wolves (which used to roam across Britain) are supposed to howl more during the month of January, which is also their mating season.
This I can believe because foxes also become more vocal this time of year for the same reason.
Here's my Wolf Moon pics.
At first, it looked like the cloud wasn't going to relent.
But then I spotted a gap appearing, and the gap was getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger, so it was a hold back and wait moment, when the cloud totally cleared!
