A full moon occurs when the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun, which means that its side can be completely illuminated.

How to watch Wolf Moon

If you live in a city with an Eastern time zone like New York, the Moon will rise at 4:31 p.m. EST on Monday and will appear at its highest at 6:48 p.m. EST, according to NASA.

For those across west-central Africa, central Europe, Eurasia and Australia, a wolf moon will appear on Tuesday.

You should look for the Moon “rising from the northeast horizon around dusk that evening,” according to Old Farmer’s Almanac.

“Stay warm, but when the sky is clear, use these early evenings and late dawns to get out, look up, and share in the wonders of the sky!” NASA’s Gordon Johnston offered the advice in a statement.

The Moon will appear in full for three nights from Sunday night to Wednesday morning.

Where does the name ‘Wolf Moon’ come from

The name ‘Wolf’s Full Moon’ is associated with early Native American tribes who observed hungry wolves howling outside their camps at the same time of year as the phenomenon.

The lunar event is also known by several other names, including ‘Old Moon’ and ‘ice moon’.

The January Moon, also known as the ‘Moon after Yule’, was a three-day winter solstice festival in pre-Christian Europe.
