* Full Cold Moon: The Full Cold Moon; or the Full Long Nights Moon – December
During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because the Moon is above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun.

Magpies at feeder yesterday

'Twill be nights before Christmas and high overhead,
the moon will turn brown or maybe deep red
The Earth and the sun with celestial scripts
will conspire to make a lunar eclipse.
