December’s Long Nights Moon …

This month’s Cold Moon —also known as the Long Nights Moon by some Native Americans— is full on December 10th 2011 at 9:38am ET. And although yesterday’s twilight air was nippy as the sky blushed and blued, the moon appeared warm and welcoming in the sky. Yes, I too miss the endless days of summer, but December’s long nights do give us more hours to enjoy the beauty of our nearby celestial neighbor.

    Hasn’t it been absolutely amazing lately? While driving home last night, all I could think of was “I wish I could capture this right now!” as the moon backlit the huge old white pines on the verge of the road, making them appear black-on-blue in the crisp night air. Exhilarating!
