The first full moon of the new decade is set to occur on Friday -- and it will be accompanied by a lunar eclipse.
Dubbed the "wolf moon" in Native American culture, the illuminating presence will be partially shrouded by Earth's outer shadow, according to AccuWeather. However, while the moon will appear a tad darker, the difference will likely be "subtle," according to the weather agency.
Every month has special names to describe the full moon. The names originate from Native American folklore, according to AccuWeather, and the most widely used name for January's moon is the "wolf moon." That's because wolves tend to howl more often in the winter.
