Full Long Night Moon

Tomorrow night is the full moon of December, which has sometimes been called the Cold Moon or the Long Nights Moon. The nights now are cold and long as we move toward the Winter Equinox, the longest night of the year (but also the day when the days begin to lengthen again!)

The term Long Night Moon is especially appropriate because not only are the midwinter nights especially long, but also because the moon is above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full moon takes a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low sun.

Brrrrr! The nights are cold, but the stars are bright.
