Next Full Moon
The next full moon will be Saturday, December 18th, at 11:35 pm and is known as the Cold Moon due to cold temperatures, pretty self explanatory. Another name for the December full moon is the Long Night’s Moon since it stays dark the longest this month. What’s interesting about December’s full moon is the trajectory. The moon’s height is opposite of the sun’s height which means in December, a lower angled sun creates a higher angle moon. This means the moon will be higher in the sky.
Other Interesting Events
There aren’t any neat space events this week that we will be able to see. However, a total solar eclipse will be occurring somewhere on Earth on Saturday, December 4th. Not many will be able to see it. The only places that a solar eclipse will occur is in Antarctica and the far southern Atlantic Ocean. This solar eclipse will be so isolated that only the far southern tip of South Africa will be able to see at least a partial eclipse.
