Winter Solstice and December Full Moon

Happy Solstice! Today is the December solstice (which is the Winter Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere), making tonight the longest night of the year. And, delightfully, the days now start getting longer again…

This year we get December’s full moon almost on the solstice, with the full moon arriving tomorrow. If you are so lucky as to not have torrential rains like we do here on the coast of Maine, the full moon tonight will essentially appear full. The photograph above is a December full moon from 2011, appropriately entitled the Long Nights Moon.

This site will be quiet until the new year. I hope all readers have a great holiday season, and best wishes for a wonderful 2019!
