And the one happening tonight, on January 28, is what's widely known as the "Wolf Moon," a name which is said to originate from certain Indigenous traditions.
When the Wolf Moon is expected to be visible in Montreal
The Old Farmer's Almanac tells us, "it's thought that January's full Moon came to be known as the Wolf Moon because wolves were more often heard howling at this time."
"It was traditionally believed that wolves howled due to hunger during winter, but we know today that wolves howl for other reasons. Howling and other wolf vocalizations are generally used to define territory, locate pack members, reinforce social bonds, and coordinate hunting."
According to Environment Canada, there will be a mix of sun and clouds all day until 5 p.m. and when night falls, it'll be "partly cloudy," which means there's a chance we'll get to see the Wolf Moon as it sits up in the sky.
So, make sure to take a little stroll around the city later today, as you may just spot a beautiful full moon starring down at you.
