The first full moon of 2022 will rise at 6:48 p.m. EST on Monday (Jan. 17), which is also the day the U.S. observes the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.

The “Wolf Moon,” as the Farmer’s Almanac calls it, will appear full to the naked eye for three days from Sunday evening (Jan. 16) to Wednesday morning (Jan. 19), according to NASA. Appropriately for the time of year, January’s full moon is also known as the Ice Moon. In Europe, it might be called “the moon after Yule,” a reference to the pre-Christian festival of Yule, which originated with Germanic peoples as early as the 5th century.
