December's Full Cold Moon Empty December's Full Cold Moon

Post by Dragon Sun Dec 12, 2021 3:25 am

December’s Cold Moon reaches peak illumination on Saturday, December 18, 2021, at 11:37 P.M. EST.

What makes this full Moon special? It’s most distinctive for its high trajectory across the sky, which results in the full Moon sitting above the horizon for a longer period of time.

December’s full Moon is most commonly known as the Cold Moon—a Mohawk name that conveys the frigid conditions of this time of year, when cold weather truly begins to grip us.

Other names that allude to the cold and snow include Drift Clearing Moon (Cree), Frost Exploding Trees Moon (Cree), Moon of the Popping Trees (Oglala), Hoar Frost Moon (Cree), Snow Moon (Haida, Cherokee), and Winter Maker Moon (Western Abenaki).

This full Moon has also been called the Long Night Moon (Mohican), as it rises during the “longest” nights of the year, which are near the December winter solstice.

This name is doubly fitting because December’s full Moon shines above the horizon for a longer period of time than most full Moons.
