December’s full moon is coming this weekend, with the moment of the full moon at 10:46 am on Sunday, Maine USA time. On Sunday moonset at 6:26 am and moonrise at 4:29 pm (all times local to Camden, Maine) both should be good viewing (and photographing) opportunities.

I’ve had pretty good success as part of my Adventures in Celestial Mechanics series in photographing the December full moon. Some of my favorite names from different cultures have been used for this moon as well, and included here are the Winter Maker Moon, the Long Nights Moon, the Cold Moon, and the Christmas Moon.

Enjoy!
