(WXIN) – Get those telescopes out, sky-watchers! January’s full moon, also known as the Wolf Moon, will be high in the sky on Monday night.

The peak of the full moon is around 18:48 EST.

The wolf moon will appear all the way until Wednesday morning. You may also see the star Pollux, the brightest star in the constellation Gemini, near the full moon.

The moon is believed to have gotten its name from people who associate wolves howling at the moon at this time of year, possibly from winter hunger, according to Old Bond Almanac.

Wildlife experts say wolves howling for several reasons, however, and there is no scientific connection showing that the animals howl against the moon.
