Check Out the Moon and Venus
The Moon and the planet Venus, aka "The Evening Star" create a beautiful pairing in the early evening sky tonight.
Venus can be seen shortly after sunset just below the Moon. Be sure to catch them early as they set by about 8 p.m.
Dec. 13th - The Full Cold Moon or Full Long Nights Moon
During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because the Moon is above the horizon for a long time.
The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun. Full Moon occurs at 7:05 pm. (EST)
