Full Moon to Appear on Christmas Eve First Time in 38 Years

The last time full moon appeared on Christmas was in 1977, and there won’t be another one until 2034 – so unless you want a long wait to catch a sight of this rare astronomical event, it’s a good idea to go outside and look up the sky.

What’s more, the Christmas full moon is also called the Cold Moon or the Long Night Moon. At this time winter takes a firm hold and temperatures plummet. The winter nights lengthen and the moon spends more time above the horizon opposite a low sun.

Finally, according to Nasa, the full moon will peak at 11:11pm GMT, proving a great view in the night sky.

Fascinating times!
Happy holidays, everyone xoxo
