Friday the 13th and wolves go hand in hand.

The first full moon of 2017 made its debut Thursday night into Friday morning.

The moon is often referred to as the “Wolf Moon” and comes from Native American Tribes who heard wolves howling at the night sky during the month of January.

Unlike many other full moons that may appear in a different shade, this one does not differ from your typical full moon.
