A full moon will light up the night sky on Christmas for the first time since 1977, a NASA spokesperson told ABC News.
The celestial phenomenon won’t happen again on Christmas until 2034, NASA said.
The full moon will reach its peak at 6:11 a.m. E.T., according to ABC.
The last full moon of the year in December is called the Full Cold Moon, although it is also known as the Moon before Yule, according to the Farmers’ Almanac. It has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low sun, the Farmers’ Almanac said.
