Full Moon Falls on Christmas for the First Time Since 1977

In 2015, with glad Christmas tidings come with the full moon.

This year, December’s moon reaches peak size on Christmas Day, at 6:11 a.m. EST, according to Fred Espenak, an eclipse and moon expert with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. It marks the first full moon on Christmas Day since 1977; two events won’t align again until 2034. (Of course, a full moon will fall on Dec. 25 just as often as it will any other day of the year, The Independent notes.) READ ON:http://www.weather.com/science/space/news/full-moon-falls-on-christmas
