People prepare to howl from atop the Billings rimrocks Tuesday night shortly before 8 p.m.

A Facebook group called HOWL for BILLINGS has popped up as a place for people to share videos of nightly howls from across the area.

The goal of the nightly howl is to show "those on the front lines as well as remind others in our community that they are, and we are, not alone," the HOWL group's description states.

Over the past few days, nightly howls have been taking place across Montana. Howls have been heard in Great Falls , Helena , Missoula .

People have even been baying at the moon across country in places like Colorado and California.

Montana's signature big sky provided folks with a beautiful evening sunset to view as they howled out their appreciation.
