As we welcome the year’s end, the cosmos presents a celestial gift:
- The Cold Moon
- The culminating full moon of the year
- Gracing the Christmas night sky
The Cold Moon event will be visible on December 25th and reach its peak brilliance on Tuesday, December 26th, at 7:34 p.m. EST.
The Cold Moon’s radiance won’t fade in a single night; it will enchant the skies for several evenings following its zenith.
Winter’s Enigmatic Full Moon:
Named by the Mohawk people, the Cold Moon holds various monikers, such as the “Snow Moon.”
and the “Moon When the Deer Shed Their Antlers.”
These designations symbolize the seasonal changes and renewal in nature, marking a transition for deer species.
Coming shortly after the winter solstice, it offers extended viewing pleasures during the year’s longest nights.
The Cold Moon’s Magnificent Display:
Amidst the longest nights of the year, the Cold Moon graces the skies, taking the highest path and lingering above the horizon longer than any other moon.
This extended presence promises an enchanting experience for skygazers.
Where and How to Witness the Cold Moon:
For a captivating view of the Cold Moon’s celestial performance, seek an unobstructed vantage point with a clear eastern view of the horizon.
As it rises in the east, it will illuminate between two prominent stars: Capella in the Auriga constellation and Betelgeuse in Orion.
Ideal Moment for Skywatchers:
Enthusiastic moon gazers receiving new binoculars or beginner telescopes this holiday season are in for a treat.
The Cold Moon’s three successive evenings from December 25th to the 27th offer an optimal opportunity to explore and appreciate its luminous splendor.
