Monday, January 1, 2018: Full Wolf Moon.

The year begins auspiciously with a full Moon on the 1st that is also the closest Moon of 2018–a “Supermoon”–at 9:24 P.M. EST. Traditionally, this full Moon appeared when wolves howled outside the villages in hunger, hence the “Wolf Moon.” 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.
