CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida -- There will be a Full Moon tonight on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 beginning with a moonrise over the Atlantic at 5:40 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (with a few minutes of variation depending on your exact location)


The Full Moon will technically be 99.8% full at 11:53 p.m. before it sets the following Thursday morning at 7:16 a.m.  A Full Moon in January has seasonal names such as a "Wolf's Moon" or "Old Moon."


For those planning a moonlit stroll along the beach on the U.S. East Coast, this Full Moon brings along with it a 3.1-foot  Atlantic Ocean high tide that will occur around 7:09 p.m., with a few minutes of variation depending on your exact location.  A very low tide will occur at 1:23 a.m. Thursday morning.
