    Rare full moon to grace Christmas night after 34 years

    Dec 24, Oslo: For the first time in 34 years A full moon will be seen on Christmas day, according to NASA on Thursday.

    According to the report, the full moon will peak at 6:11 a.m. EST (1111 GMT) on Dec. 25 and it will be the first full moon on Christmas since 1977. "As we look at the moon on such an occasion, it's worth remembering that the moon is more than just a celestial neighbor," John Keller, of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, said in a statement.

    He further added that the geologic history of the moon and Earth are intimately tied together, such that the Earth would be a dramatically different planet without the moon.

    Meanwhile, the report further stated that the occurance of next full moon on Christmas day will only happen until 2034 years.That’s a long time to wait, so make sure to look up to the skies on Christmas Day.
