December's Two Full Moons
December's Full Moon rises dramatically over the eastern mountains at around 4:15pm -- some 25 minutes before the time of sunset -- on Tuesday, December 1. The same full moon will set about 14 hours later over the ocean at dawn. This is the first of two full moons occurring during the calendar month of December 2009. According to folklore, the second of these full moons in the same calendar month (due December 31) is known as a "blue moon."
