January 2022’s Full Moon has already been spotted across the globe, with the glowing orb also known as the Wolf Moon. Glancing up at the night sky you’ll be able to spot the Wolf Moon in all it’s glory, but there’s a specific time the Moon will be at its best.

There will be 12 Full Moons in 2022, and tonight’s Wolf Moon is the first of the year.

The Full Moon is often blamed for a range of problems – like not getting enough sleep or even emergency services seeing an increase in ‘wild’ behaviour.

Humans have long tied the Full Moon to ongoing events, even naming each month’s Moon to reflect this.

Tonight’s Full Moon is known as the Wolf Moon, so-called because hungry wolves would howl at the Moon during January.

Exact time to see Wolf Moon at its best in the sky TONIGHT

If you’re preparing to head out and look at the Full Moon, you may want to hold off until later tonight.

Tonight’s Wolf Moon will reach its fullest size and look at its best at 11.48pm GMT.

Be sure to wrap up warm if heading outside, as tonight is forecast to be chilly.

Unfortunately for some, fog is forecast to obscure the skies and so could make spotting the Wolf Moon harder.

The Met Office forecast states: “Early clear skies in the south, leading into a cold night, with frost and areas of fog, especially Yorkshire southwards: some dense, freezing fog patches are possible.

“Some cloud further west and north, and fairly mild for parts of N.Scotland.”

Fog warnings are in place tonight for the East Midlands, East of England, London and South East England, South West England, Wales, West Midlands, and Yorkshire and Humber.
