Christmas Full Moon with Frederic Larson

The December Winter Full Moon

The bright full moon of December will rise overnight tonight (Dec. 28) on the heels of severe snow storms across the United States, bringing with it some appropriately chilly lunar nicknames.

December's full moon has many names, but perhaps the most timely are its "Snow Moon" and "Frost Moon" monikers since the moon hits its full phase as Alaska braces for a monster storm along its west coast, and just over a week after a huge storm rocked the U.S. east coast.

Also this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.

Come join me and a fun gang of moon shooters in San Francisco for the fall classic full moon rise. A perfect shot for greeting cards or your portfolio.
