A WOLF Moon will be lighting up the winter sky tonight (January 17) with stargazers around the world ready to enjoy the incredible phenomenon.
A Full moon happens when the moon is situated on the opposite side of Earth to the Sun, which means its face can be fully illuminated.
The first full moon of 2022 is known as the Wolf Moon and it will peak in brightness tonight – when the moon finds itself directly across from the Sun at a 180-degree angle.
The name Wolf Moon is associated with early Native American tribes who observed hungry wolves howling at the moon outside their camps around the same time of year as this phenomenon.
Howling wolves prowled outside their villages in the winter months to communicate with each other, be it a warning or a signal to guide other wolves to a location or prey.
