Long Night’s Moon

FullMoon.jpg

According to folklore, tonight’s full moon is the Long Nights Moon. It gets its name from the long nights of December, when the full moon is closest to the Winter Solstice. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. There’s also something special about the Long Nights Moon: it travels extra-high in the sky, passing almost directly overhead at midnight. Go outside and take a look.

  1. I did go out and look at the moon around midnight, it was directly overhead and shone down like a huge spotlight in the sky. It was rather incredible looking.
