What do the wolves howl about at night?

That must be a scary sight of a pack of wolves howling at night. And they only do it when the moon is on the sky in a full view.
Why do they do it? What is it that affects those beasts when they see the full moon?
Could it just be a moon light? Or is it something related to the power of gravitation similar like the ocean waves perform their tidal rituals?
There are many horror stories about wolves turning into werewolves when the full moon shines its mysterious light upon them.
Wolves only howl in the darkness, it’s proven. Some theories affirm that that howling upon the moon works as signal of a rallying the pack, gathering them together for the group activity. . Another suggestion is that the wolves do not distinguish colours apart of black and white, therefore they see the moon as if it is the Sun. They got scared of light in the darkness of night and become aggressive. That could have been underlining the stories about werewolves.
The moon affects everything on the Earth. Animals and plants are sensitive to the moonlight. And, as we know, the moonlight governs high and low tides of the oceans.
The moon holds a mystical place in the history of human culture, so it’s no wonder that many myths — from werewolves to induced lunacy to epileptic seizures — have built up regarding whether they are true or myths.
We, as the human being are also dependable on the Moon – or at least many believe so. Its cycles influence our mood, and if we pay enough attention we could have noticed a correlation between the lunar phases and how we feel. There are times when we are more irritable, while at other times we feel calm and even languid.
For people, that are mentally fragile, the full moon could make them behave in a crazy way. However, researchers today can’t find any solid evidence that people are more prone to mental health problems on the full moon than at any other time of month. Nevertheless, aggressive and violent behavior has been also linked to the moon phases. There have been some studies that suggest people might be more violent on the full moon. For instance, one major study in the 1970s found that there was an increase in reported aggravated assaults around the full moon; another found crime in general was more common on the full moon.
We are all fascinated when hearing about moonwalkers, people mysteriously walking in a sleeping state, with closed eyes, crossing narrow roof edges or outside windowsills and not making any mistakes in their movements. This is maybe the most popular myth surrounding the full moon, and it goes back a long way. In fact, the word “lunatic” even comes from a Latin root indicating the moon. However, why and how that happens to people is still not fully understood in spite of an ample scope of research.
What the research has proved though is that the full moon affects our sleep pattern.
Sleep studies have found that people are more agitated when sleeping around the full moon, even when they don’t know what phase the moon is in. So maybe the moon does have some sort of impact on our subconscious.
“It must be a full moon,” is a phrase heard whenever crazy things happen and is said by researchers to be muttered commonly by late-night cops, psychiatry staff and emergency room personnel. Those people might know a thing or two about this connection, still unproven scientifically but not fully rejected either.
Apart of everything it is such a beautiful sight: full moon in the sky, the moonlight path on the ocean’s surface and that sweet melancholic feeling that comes over us while we admire such a view. And the music! One of the most beautiful piano pieces is the “Moonlight Sonata” by Ludwig van Beethoven. The man was deaf while composing his music, but he could see the beauty.
Enjoy the moonlight! It’s better than a computer screen.
