Thursday, January 28, 2021: Full Wolf Moon.
In 2021, the full Moon rises on January 28 at 2:16 P.M. EST. Traditionally, this full Moon was called the “Wolf Moon,” appearing when wolves howled outside the villages in hunger. The January Moon has also been called the Old Moon. To some Native American tribes, this was the Snow Moon, but most applied that name to the next full Moon, in February.
