Full Moon at Twilight
This is a photo of Last Night’s nearly full moon. It will be full tonight.
Called The Long Night Moon by some Native American people, it will glow more brightly than any other this year. According to National Geographic, it will be “30 percent brighter and 14 percent larger than the other full moons…” This is because the moon is at its perigee (closest point to earth). The moon hasn’t shone this brightly for 15 years and it will be another 8 years before it occurs again!
Tonight will be lovely, so, if it isn’t raining, take a moment to step outside and enjoy the lighting of the heavens. Winter is a time for gathering close with your families. Invite them to stop and share just a minute of the night.
