Rudolph’s red nose won’t be the only light guiding Santa’s sleigh this year, as December’s full moon will shine on Christmas for the first time in 38 years.
The size of the moon will peak at 6:11 a.m. EST on Dec. 25, The Weather Channel reported.
A full moon is as likely to fall on Christmas Day as it is on any other day. The last time Christmas saw a full moon was 1977. It won’t happen again until 2034.
Because the moon’s size will peak so early in the morning on Christmas Day, The Weather Channel recommends looking to the sky during the nighttime hours of Christmas Eve for the best view of the full moon.
So after you’ve hung the stockings by the chimney with care, step outside for a pretty view. Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a bright night!
