With 2019 coming to a close, it’s not just the end of the year, it’s the end of a decade. Among all the ‘lasts’ that will soon be taking place, the coming week will also let you see the very last and final full moon of the decade.
At midnight on December 12, make sure you look at your window or take a moment to stand on your porch and gaze at the moonlit sky. Because this full moon is going to be a special one. If you’re wondering about the exact time at which you can catch the full moon in all its glory, it won’t be that hard for you to remember.
The full moon will reach its peak on December 12, or 12/12 (!) at 12:12 am. A delightful combination of numbers, don’t you think?
Also referred to as the Cold Moon and a Long Night’s Moon, the date and time at which the full moon peaks is a delightful combination, as reported by ABC News. The full moon for the month is also known as the Full Cold Moon in some Native Americans tribes, marking the onset of the cold winter season, as explained by The Old Farmer’s Almanac.
While residents of the eastern time zone can catch the full moon on 12/12 at 12:12 am, those living in Kansas City’s central time zone, however, can see the full moon peaking on 12/11, at 11:12 pm.
“This full moon is distinctive for its high trajectory across the sky, causing it to sit above the horizon for a longer period of time,” said experts, according to Fox4kc.com.
As the very last full moon of the decade, there might also be a unique significance to the palindrome.
While explaining the significance of the number 12, the Farmers Almanac also quoted NumerolgySecrets.net saying, “The number 12 is at the very end of the numerology spectrum, and it offers those who see it in their daily life the opportunity to… wrap up a certain life stage and situation before moving forward to bigger and better things. This number is like a curtain call that allows you to get your affairs together so you can benefit from the windfall that the universe is about to bestow on you.”
Certain days of the month were also highlighted among others as being better for carrying out certain acts. In December 2019, the best day for a haircut was said to be December 19 and 20 whereas the best days to do some holiday traveling was said to be December 15 and 16.
So, wherever you are in December, find out the exact time at which you can see the full moon at its peak and take a few moments to gaze at the beautiful sight, conjured up by nature.
