Wolf Moon photos

Several YouReporters sent in photos to wptv.com of the 'Wolf Moon.'

According to Wikipedia: The Wolf Moon is the name given by Native Americans to a full moon that occurs in January. Native Americans chose this name because they heard hungry wolf packs howl outside the villages.

YouReporter John said his photo was "almost the photo of a lifetime."

Here's his description: Almost the photo of a lifetime. So I'm setting up the telescope and camera tonight to try and get some full-moon shots. While I was dialing in the focus, I noticed something moving across the field of view and reached up and hit the shutter button on the camera as a reflex. It wasn't till I looked at the image on the computer did I realize I caught a jetliner passing in front of the moon. Unfortunately I didn't have the telescope focused yet but caught a pretty cool shot. The odds of this are pretty staggering, the telescope gives the camera ~1850mm focal length (pretty zoomed) and the field of view considering the full sky is got to be only a few tenths of a degree.
