Full Moon Tonight

Be sure to take a peek at the moon tonight. Here it has been cloudy for three days, and no sign of relief. Just a few flakes of snow. It is cold, 27 degrees F.

Re: Full Moon Tonight

It was gorgeous and HUGE -- I saw it around 5am when it had come around to the west side of the house but still pretty high up in the sky.

Re: Full Moon Tonight

At the horizon here it was huge and orange. Some native Americans called the December full moon the Cold Moon or the Long Nights Moon. Apt.

Re: Full Moon Tonight

Certainly, a time of Long Nights (& cold) - the sun now sets here before 4pm and rises after 7:30am.

I tried to catch the moonrise but it was cloudy. This morning, it was a brilliant silver disk about 3 hours after AppleStar saw it on its way West ;). Luckily, I had a good view from the house windows as it was 4°f outdoors.

A little more snow will fall tonight and tomorrow, then it will be well below zero Saturday morning. All this, according to the Weather Service. I imagine that moon will still be brilliantly shining through those windows on Saturday morning, too.

Re: Full Moon Tonight

Still overcast and snowing here. I just went out and started the tractor and moved about 4 inches of snow off the drive. Don't know if we will get a chance to see the moon?

Re: Full Moon Tonight

Cloudy here. About midnight I was able to see the moon through some wispy clouds. Not a clear shot.
