Winter Solstice and Full Cold Moon

>> Tuesday, December 21, 2010

The solstice arrives with winter today at 6:38pm EST. That would be 4:38 pm in my neck of the woods. This year’s first day of winter also arrived with the Full Cold Moon as well as a total lunar eclipse. As if that wasn’t busy enough, we now have three and a half inches of snow on the ground, with more on its way. All in all a very eventful day!

December’s full Moon is also called the Long Nights Moon by some Native American tribes. Other names are Frost Moon and Moon Before Yule.

Since it was snowing so heavily I did not get to see the moon but found this beautiful photo of it online.
