The full moon of January is called the Wolf Moon because wolf howls are often heard outside the villages amid the cold and deep snows of January’s winter according to NASA.

The full moon is the most striking phase of the moon, as during the full moon, the entire dayside of the moon is visible.

A full moon rises around sunset and sets around sunrise, i.e., at the opposite time of the sun, because, during a full moon, the moon is located on the opposite side of the sun with respect to the earth.

If you missed watching January’s full ‘Wolf Moon’, then the next full moon, February’s full ‘Snow Moon’ will rise on the evening of February 24, 2024. Don’t forget to watch it.
