UK will see a RARE Christmas Day moon that won’t be seen for another 19 years


On Christmas Eve we will see what can be described as santa to the kids, but what is actually the International Space Station passing above our skies.

Also on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day there will be a full moon, there hasn’t been a full moon on Christmas Day since 1977 and there won’t be another until 2034.

The full moon is also know as the Full Cold Moon and the Moon before Yule.

It will peak at its brightest around 11.11am on Christmas Eve and will be bright on Christmas Day evening too, so make sure you grab a snap of the Christmas moon and send it to us along with any of your other festive photos.

This year the UK was treated to a RARE supermoon lunar eclipse that won’t be seen again until 2033. Look through the stunning pictures that were captured across Merseyside here.
