The first full moon of the year, known as the Wolf Moon, will be visible on Wednesday night and will peak on Thursday. It will reach peak illumination at 12:54 p.m. ET on Thursday and will remain visible until around midnight on Friday. The Old Farmer’s Almanac provides specific moonrise times for different ZIP codes in the United States. No special tools are needed to see the full moon, but a telescope or binoculars can enhance the viewing experience. The Wolf Moon is named after the howling of wolves in January, and it is also known as the Center Moon.
