Historic Christmas full moon appears briefly over Shenandoah Valley

Christmas 30 full moonAfter all the rain, I didn’t think we would get to see tonight’s historic Christmas full moon. But we got a glimpse as it rose above the mountains before disappearing into the clouds, the first full moon on Christmas Eve/Day since 1977. It is an event that won’t happen again until 2034.

Merry Christmas!

Wednesday night’s full orange October moon

By Lynn R. Mitchell


While walking this evening I watched the full October moon rise from behind the ridge in the back of our house so hurried home for my camera and snapped this photo while the orange-colored moon was still behind the trees. This morning I took photos of the lunar eclipse that resulted in the “blood” moon which turned red. Quite a show today, both morning and night. (See Viewing the ‘blood moon’ eclipse in Shenandoah Valley and Up early to watch lunar eclipse of ‘blood’ moon).
