We are so fortunate to have breaks in the clouds tonight. That allows us to see the 13th and final Full Moon of 2020. This moon is referred to as the Cold Moon. All Full Moons are named and that’s the name designated for this one.
The moon actually became full during the night last night, but this evening was the first time it rose as a Full Moon.
The clouds just make it look so much cooler. From time to time, the ice crystals in the clouds scatter the light and make reddish hues. It’s so pretty.
If you look nearly straight up you’ll see a red “star”. That’s Mars.
Step out and take a look. Take a jacket, though. There’s a bit of a breeze making it a bit cool.
I snapped some pics and they turned out pretty good! You all have a nice night! Tonight is the last full night of 2020!

Thank you, Sherri! It’s my pleasure!
