A bright and shinning gift on the sky for ChristmasBy Dania Vargas Austryjak
The last full moon of the year
The sky on this year’s Christmas Day will be illuminated by the last full moon of the year, which is also known as the Full Cold Moon, as it is up on the beginning of winter. But that’s not all; the most interesting thing yet is that this will be the first full moon shinning on Christmas since 1977.
A rare full moon event will happen this year, as the completely illuminated satellite will coincide with Christmas for the first time in 38 years and it won’t happen again until the year 2034.
The full bright and shiny moon will begin two days before and reach its peak at 6:11 a.m. EST. so if you’re still partying, or waking up early to open up the presents under the Christmas tree, be sure to check out the last full moon of the year.
Remember that “This rare event won’t happen again until 2034. That’s a long time to wait, so make sure to look up to the skies on Christmas Day.” as stated by the team of NASA
