Winter Moon



A full moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are on opposite sides of the 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.




Man in the Moon

Look at what's rising: Luna, Selene, man in the Moon.

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 rhymes.
