Full Cold Moon on Christmas won’t occur again until 2034

The dazzling moon that brightened the most recent Christmas was the first ‘Full Cold Moon’ on Christmas in nearly four decades.
It was called Full Cold Moon because of its full size and the timing of the beginning of winter season. As per the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), it was the first Full Cold Moon since 1977 that brightened Christmas night sky.
Unfortunately, the full moon was cloaked by clouds in many parts of the United States and in other countries of the world. But in other parts where the skies were clear the full moon was a holiday treat for sky watchers.

Dennis Doucet, a resident of Kobe, Japan, said a brief break in the clouds allowed him get a clear shot of the moon. He shared the image of the spectacular moon with rest of the world through Internet.

Sharing the dazzling moon’s image, Doucet said, “It was overcast for most of the evening, but there was a brief break in the clouds and I was able to get a clear shot of the moon.”

According to NASA, the next Full Cold Moon on Christmas will not occur again until the year of 2034.
