There Will Be a Full Moon on Christmas for the First Time in 38 Years
One of the most tear-jerking Christmas ads of the season features a little girl communicating with a lonely man on the moon during the holidays. And it looks like the unlikely friends will get to chat quite a bit this year. ABC News reports that a full moon will appear on Christmas Day for the first time since 1977.
The last full moon of the year is called the Full Cold Moon or the Full Long Nights Moon, named after the long, chilly nights of the winter. This full moon has a high trajectory across the sky, because the sun is low on the horizon this time of year, according to the Farmers' Almanac.
It's been a particularly long time since the last Christmas full moon, but it's not abnormal. According toThe Independent, a full moon will appear on the same day twice every 59 years. NASA says the next time a Full Cold Moon will appear on Christmas day will be 2034, and it will reach its peak at 3:54 a.m.
If you want to see the full moon at its biggest size, head outside at 6:11 a.m. ET on Christmas morning. It'll make for a beautiful family moment before opening up all the presents under the tree.
