The second full moon since the winter solstice rises over Baltimore tomorrow at 5:59 p.m. Our ancestors knew it as the Wolf Moon, the Snow Moon or the Hunger Moon. It's easy, and chilling, to imagine why. This one rises nine hours after a "penumbral eclipse," a slight darkening of the moon as it passes through the edge of the shadow Earth casts into space. It will be visible from Asia and the Pacific.
