Catch the Rare Full Moon on Christmas

Picture1.png

“…And to all a good night.”

The full moon in December is known as the “Cold Moon” or the “Long Nights Moon” (according to the Farmer’s Almanac) because it’s the month that winter begins in the Northern Hemisphere.

Rudolph may get to take Christmas off this year because the full moon will be shining bright for Santa! The cold, bright, beautiful, December full moon will rise on Christmas morning. The Christmas moon will peak on December 25 at 3:11 a.m. PST.  There has not been a full moon on Christmas since 1977 and won’t happen again until 2034!

NOAA’s long range forecast, is predicting temperature’s in the high 30’s, with a 40% chance of precipitation at Lake Billy Chinook.
