It’s a Christmas moon!

Pine trees, festive lights, and Rudolph’s nose won’t be the only things lit up on Christmas. According to NASA, the first full moon on Christmas since 1977 will rise on Friday night.
The next Christmas full moon won’t happen again until 2034, so after presents are opened and dinner is eaten, make sure to take your family outside to look at the skies.
While looking at the Christmas moon, you are also looking up at a NASA spacecraft that is orbiting Earth’s moon.
December’s last full moon of the year is called the Full Cold Moon because it occurs during the beginning of winter. The moon’s peak this year will occur at 7:11 a.m. CST.
