ORLANDO, Fla. – The sky should be mostly clear across Central Florida to catch a glimpse of the first full moon of the year Thursday.
January’s full moon is also known as the Wolf Moon because howling wolves were often heard at this time of the year. The moon has looked full for the past several nights, but will officially be full Thursday.
The moon will be at its fullest at 2:18 p.m. Thursday, but will still appear full after it rises shortly after 6 p.m.
If you snap any photos upload them to the PinIt section of the Pinpoint Weather App. The app is free to download.
The next full moon will occur Feb. 27. That is known as the snow moon.
