Wolf Moon on January 25, 2024
|Wolf Moon 2024|
Thursday, January 25, 2024, is the date of the Wolf Moon, the first full moon of 2024. Given that the December 2023 moon falls after the winter solstice, this will be the second full moon of the winter 2023–2024 season.

On Saturday, February 24, 2024, there will be the second full moon of the year, popularly referred to as the full Snow Moon. The third full moon of the winter season 2023–2024 will occur on this date.
This moon was given the name "Snow Moon" because most Northern Hemisphere countries experience colder weather during this month of the year, which results in snowfall in many places. Due to the lack of food sources and challenging hunting conditions in the middle of winter, certain Native American tribes are credited with giving it this name.

The name "pink" for the April full moon may imply that the moon will turn this color when it rises, but this is untrue because the moon gets its name from occurring at the same time as "phlox subulata," a wild flower that blooms at the start of spring in North America and has a beautiful pink color that is one of the telltale signs of spring.
