NASA confirmed that the Full Moon will occur today. NASA Sun & Space Twitter handle tweeted, “Hello beautiful! The first full Moon of the year – also known as the #WolfMoon – will occur this Friday evening, Jan. 6. During a full Moon, the hemisphere of the Moon we can see from Earth is fully illuminated by the Sun.” The full moon can be seen in the late afternoon, rising high overhead in the evening and in the northern hemisphere.
