Last Full Moon of 2021

Monday morning, December 20, 2021 | 16 Tevet 5782 | Phoenix, Arizona

The last Full Moon before the winter solstice was on Saturday night, December 18, 2021, at 11:36 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) according to NASA.

This appearance of the Full Moon slipped my mind, but I got a picture of it early Monday morning, the 20th.

Not so bad:

“The Moon will appear full for three days around this time, from Friday evening through Monday morning, making this a full Moon weekend.”
