Full moon Christmas 2015:After 38 years we can enjoy it but in early morning
This is the first time in around 38 years when Christmas will coincide with a full moon. The fact that the next will not come before almost a decade has made the spectacle look all the more exciting.
So expect the Christmas enthusiasts tomorrow to move out of their homes and get the best glimpse of the full cold moon.
The last time there was a full moon on Christmas was in the year 1977, more than 38 years ago. And the next will happen only in the year 2034
In the meantime more and more details are coming forward about the Christmas full moon. In a report on its website Weather.com has come out with almost every possible detail about the spectacle. The website says that the moon will reach its fullest size at 6:11 a.m. EST on Christmas morning. So this means if you continue to sleep through this time, you will miss the bus. And the next occasion will come only on Dec. 25, 2034.
The whole world seems to be excited about it. NASA says that it is going to be the first Christmas since 1977 when Christmas and full moon will come together. The event is so rare, in fact, that a NASA spokesperson told US news outlet ABC this would be the first Christmas Day to see in as many as 38 years. NASA is also excited due to the fact that the next similar spectacle will not be taking place for close to two decades. NASA has said that the next full moon on Christmas is not expected before 2034. The particular cycle of the moon in 2015 also means the annual Geminid meteor shower is taking place while the sky is at its blackest (from the night of Monday December 14), and promises to be bigger and better than ever.
