The first full moon of 2022, known as the Wolf Moon, will rise about 24 minutes before sunset on the US East Coast tonight.

The name of the January moon comes from how howls of wolf packs could be heard outside the outskirts of towns amid the cold, deep snows of winter.

The wolf moon will rise at 4:31 p.m. EST and peak at 6:48 p.m. EST, and will be visible through Wednesday.

This will be Tuesday from the Western Central African and Central European time zones east through the rest of Africa, Eurasia and Australia to the International Date Line.

Some sky watchers will also see a bright star next to the bright moon tonight. This is Pollux, a star that is part of the Gemini constellation, NASA shared in a blog post.

Both Jupiter and Saturn will also be visible, but the planets will be opposite the moon above the southwestern horizon.

And the next full moon is set for February 16, known as a new moon.

There will be 12 full moons this year, two of which will be supermoons, full moons that are brighter and closer to Earth than normal.

On the night of a full moon, we average 30 fewer minutes of deep, dreamless sleep, while our best sleep tends to occur on the night of a half moon.

However, while the moon is full, everyone will experience less sleep, but women have a more dramatic drop in REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, during which we dream, there is a peak of REM sleep for men during a full moon .

The full moon can also make us hungry.

During deep sleep, we produce more of a hormone called leptin, which helps us feel full and satisfied. Meanwhile, ghrelin, which has the opposite effect of inducing hunger, decreases.

And then our moods are affected by the full moon.

A biologist discovered in his research that the mood swings of his bipolar patients corresponded to the lunar calendar, and he believes this could be due to the tides acting on the human body.

When there are big events in the lunar cycle, like the full moon, this can cause noticeable mood swings, leading us to be more likely to snack while reaching for a sugary treat to pick us up again.

Mike Hardman, marketing manager for Alliance Online, said in a statement: “Overall, there is still a lot of research to be done on the relationship between humans and the moon, and the effect it has on our appetite is no exception.”

“However, there are several studies that suggest a full moon can disrupt sleep, which can make you feel hungry.” So if you find yourself going round and round and looking for snacks this time of month, the full moon could be to blame.

‘If you often feel like having a late-night snack at this time, try to avoid sugary foods or caffeinated treats like chocolate, as they can keep you awake longer. Instead, choose snacks like nuts, berries, or whole-grain toast. These will fill you up without disrupting your sleep cycle.
