Rare, bright full moon on Christmas Day
MANILA, Philippines – A full moon will be seen on Christmas Day, a rare event that has not happened in about 4 decades and won't happen again in nearly two decades.
"Not since 1977 has a full moon dawned in the skies on Christmas. But this year, a bright full moon will be an added gift for the holidays," according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
"This rare event won’t happen again until 2034. That’s a long time to wait, so make sure to look up to the skies on Christmas Day," the space agency added.
To take part in the momentous event, Filipinos shared their photos of the moon on social media.
