To view December’s full moon, you’ll have to bundle up to see it.

Considering the dropping temperatures outside, December’s full Moon is a Mohawk name that resembles the colder and frigid temperatures outside during this time of the year.

Most commonly named the Full Cold Moon, the name comes from Native American, Colonial American, or other traditional sources that have been passed down through generations.

So when is the best time to catch the full Cold Moon?

You’ll want to gaze up at the sky just before sunset, right as it begins to peek above the horizon.

This full Moon will also have a high trajectory which means that the full Cold Moon will remain above the horizon for a longer period of time in the sky compared to most Moons that are full!
