Witness the Splendor of the Year’s Final Full Moon: The Christmas ‘Cold Moon’

December the 22nd marks a date of great significance for the stargazing community across the globe. This date marks the arrival of the Christmas Cold Moon, which will once again grace our night skies with its presence. As the last full moon of the year, the Christmas Cold Moon has been seen to evoke a feeling of joy, happiness and a sense of renewal after a turbulent 2020. Here we look at how you can best catch a glimpse of this beautiful sight, with a few tips for amateur stargazers.

Most importantly, the countries in the Northern hemisphere will have the best visibility of the moon due to its position in the night sky. In some years, the moon can be observed in the early morning hours, but this time the Christmas Cold Moon will be visible all throughout the night. If you live in the Southern hemisphere, not to worry! Though visibility may vary depending on where you are located, you can still spot the moon with a bit of patience.

For the best viewing, be sure to look towards the east-southeast portion of the sky around 2 hours after sunset. This is where the moon will be visible, with light emanating from the cold but beautiful winter night. After that, the moon will slowly creep towards the northern horizon about an hour later. So be sure to take note of the timing of your local sunset, as this will be the best time for viewing the moon.

In terms of equipment, it is not necessary to have a telescope in order to observe the Christmas Cold Moon. Taking a pair of binoculars is an easy and convenient way to admire the beauty of this star from your comforts of your home. However, if you have access to a telescope, then you will be able to observe the moon up close and with remarkable detail.

Seeing the Christmas Cold Moon can be an incredibly rewarding experience, as you will be witness to one of the most spectacular sights that nature can offer. Be sure to take the time this year to appreciate the beauty of this moment, and perhaps look towards the coming 2021 with a newfound sense of optimism and hope.
