The “Cold Moon” as seen from Darlington SC! Be sure to check it out, folks. It’s pretty amazing. More info on this rare beauty from space.com:
“The full moon of December, called the Full Cold Moon, will arrive tonight (Dec. 22), a day after making a close pass by Aldebaran, the brightest star in Taurus.
The moon becomes officially full on Dec. 22 at 12:49 p.m. EST (1749 GMT), according to NASA. The moon will be in the constellation Taurus and will rise about 15 minutes after sunset. The full moon happens to occur a day after the winter solstice. The last time a full moon coincided with the solstice was in 2010, and the next will be in 2094.”
