A full wolf moon will be rising to reach its peak illumination here in Texas at around 2:18 p.m. The moon won't be visible until it rises above the horizon around sunset. 

Each moon has its own name associated with the full moon. In January, it's called the "wolf moon," supposedly inspired by hungry wolves that howled outside of villages long ago, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.

There will be three supermoons and a “Blue Moon” to the first total lunar eclipse “Blood Moon” to be visible from North America this year.
