Earth at the same time. Occurring on a 29.53-day cycle, the full lunar
phase in each month is known by many different names depending on the
culture or religion.
The late autumn full moon in December is known as the Oak Moon, Cold
Moon or Frost Moon
It is also commonly known as the Frost Moon, Winter Moon, Long Night's
Moon or the Moon Before Yule.
Buddhists refer to the December full moon as nduvap Poya while Hindus
call it Margashirsha Poornima.

Much of the universe, as we know it, is strange and distant, full of
lifeless orbs and wild cataclysms and dark voids. We know little about
the quasars and nebulae and supernovae of outer space. Through our
telescopes we peer at stars and planets and galaxies, but how well do
we really know them? We can only see what we can see.
The moon is different. It is closer to us than any other heavenly
object, both physically and imaginatively. It has been part of our
stories and dreams since the dawn of time. It's the stuff of nursery
