The full moon is the lunar phase when the Moon appears fully illuminated from Earth 's perspective. This occurs when Earth is located directly between the Sun and the Moon (more exactly, when the ecliptic longitudes of the Sun and Moon differ by 180° ). This means that the lunar hemisphere facing Earth – the near side – is completely sunlit and appears as a circular disk, while the far side is dark. The full moon occurs once roughly every month .

The interval period between a new or full moon and the next same phase, a synodic month , averages about 29.53 days. Therefore, in those lunar calendars in which each month begins on the day of the new moon, the full moon falls on either the 14th or 15th day of the lunar month . Because a calendar month consists of a whole number of days, a lunar month may be either 29 or 30 days long.

A full moon is often thought of as an event of a full night's duration. This is somewhat misleading because its phase seen from Earth continuously waxes or wanes (though much too slowly to notice in real time with the naked eye ). Its maximum illumination occurs at the moment waxing has stopped. For any given location, about half of these maximum full moons may be visible, while the other half occurs during the day, when the full moon is below the horizon.

It had been a full year since I read Luna: New Moon  by Ian McDonald before I finally got around to reading the sequel to it (this was largely caused by my husband nicking it to read before me, so that’s a good sign) and, with my inability to cope well with large casts of characters, I was concerned I would struggle to get into the story again.

I needn’t have worried. Within a couple of chapters I was back into things and up to speed with what was happening. That pace kept up, bar a couple of short sections, right to the end.

Luna is a project of impressive scope. A moon governed by families with links to an Earth that needs the lunar resources and will, when needed, flex its muscles. The inter-family war that erupted at the end of the book one shows no sign of letting up. Set against this, myriad relationships, friendships, partnerships and enmities that keep the wide-ranging story essentially a human one. For the tech lovers, there’s plenty to enjoy here from the well-thought out considerations of the challenges a lunar base would face, to engaging tech that feels like it could be real.

The new year will be off to a celestial start with the appearance of a bigger and brighter supermoon — this time nicknamed the “wolf moon.”

The supermoon is a nickname of its own, referring to a full moon that appears larger and more luminous due to its increased proximity to the Earth. The wolf moon, however, refers to the first full moon of the new year, which so happens to fall on New Year’s Day this time around, according to NASA.

The second of a “supermoon trilogy” that began with a supermoon at this beginning of this month , the New Year’s supermoon should look about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual, the space agency reports. The final installment of the supermoon series will kick off on Jan. 31, which will be “extra special,” NASA says.

The full Wolf moon – or January's full moon – will be visible on 12 January. It is thought to have been dubbed the wolf moon by Native American tribes because at this time of year wolves would often howl in their search for scarce prey.

Food shortages in winter months meant they would scavenge for food wherever they could and travel around more than when prey is abundant. Wolves would also be competing with humans for food, and would sometimes gather outside villages.

Full moon names tend to reflect the goings on of that time of the year . For example, February's moon is known as the full snow moon – because traditionally this is the month where most snow falls. Other than being called a full wolf moon, it is just a normal moon .
