Full Wolf Moon in 2022

The first full moon of 2022, known as the wolf moon, rose 24 minutes before the sun set on tonight Monday 17th January.

The name for the January moon stems from how packs of wolves were heard howling outside of outside the villages amid the cold and deep snows of winter.

The wolf moon rose at 4:31pm EST and peak at 6:48pm EST – and it will be visible until Wednesday.

This will be on Tuesday from West Central Africa and Central European Time Zones eastward across the rest of Africa, Eurasia, and Australia to the International Date Line.
