Finally, the world got a glimpse of the last full moon of the year or the decade.
The full moon on the rise just shortly after midnight, in Gemini. This moon has been known as the Cold Moon, the Moon Before Yule, Long Nights Moon, and so on.
According to the Farmer’s Almanac, “During this month, the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule.
The term Long Night’s Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long and because the moon is above the horizon for a long time.
The full midwinter moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun. The Cold Moon gets its name because December is the month when it starts to get cold, although our coldest average temperatures are in January. The Long Night Moon gets its name because the full moon in December occurs near the solstice, which has the longest night of the year.”
Whereas NASA said that “Europeans call the December full moon the Moon before Yule. Yule is an old northern European winter festival that is now associated with Christmas.
This is the time when it is on the high trajectory up in the sky.
