Christmas full moon to rise for first time this century
The celebration of the nativity of Jesus Christ will be extra brighter & special this year the perfect time for children to “spot” Santa Claus in the sky on Christmas night, if the parable were to be believed. If you’re younger than 38 this will be your first chance to see a full moon on Christmas.
The last time it happened was 1977 and it won’t happen again until 2034 according toThe Weather Channel. The Earth’s pale satellite will take a nice, long trip across the sky starting Christmas Eve, just a few days after the winter solstice. Watch for it rising over Detroit in the east-northeast at 4:52 p.m. Dec. 24 and setting in the west-northwest at 7:45 a.m. Dec. 25, according totimeanddate.com.
December’s full moon is called the “cold moon” because, appropriately enough, “it is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark,” according to theFarmer’s Almanac .
The winter solstice occurs at 11:49 p.m. Dec. 21, which is at or near the longest night of the year before the days start to lengthen again. The day of winter solstice is exactly 6 hours and 12 minutes shorter than June’s summer solstice, according tocommendation.
If you’re going outside to watch the full moon, or perhaps some flying caribou pulling a sleigh with a bearded man in a red suit, Detroit’s sunset on Dec. 24 is 5:04 p.m.The Christmas sunrise is at 8 a.m.
