Moonlight should cast shadows tonight as clear skies reveal a brilliant full moon. January's "Old Moon" rises at 4:55 p.m. in Baltimore and sets at 7:50 a.m. tomorrow. The northern hemisphere tilts away from the sun in winter (and toward a full moon), the reverse of summer. Streetcorner astronomer Herman Heyn says tonight's moon will follow about the same path across the sky as the sun does on a long, hot July 3, climbing nearly to the zenith (straight up) at midnight, and shining nearly 15 hours.
