For the first time this century a rare full moon nicknamed the “cold moon” will reach its peak size on Christmas day.
There hasn’t been a full moon on Christmas since 1977, and the next one after this will be in 2034.
It looks like Santa might not have to rely on Rudolph’s red nose to guide his sleigh this year.
December’s moon, nicknamed the “cold moon” will reach its peak size on Dec. 25 at around 6:11 a.m.
