There’s a lot of unusual activity going on in Connecticut this December. Most notably, our weather has been somewhat comparable to Los Angeles.
How is that possible? Well, El Niño is our friend, to say the least. Apparently El Niño is in full swing this year and it’s bringing record warmth to the northeast.
Of course, that’s going to be a bummer for anyone hoping for a white Christmas. Odds are, there won’t be snow on the ground come December 25. Frankly, it feels like we’re more likely to be grilling than shoveling on Christmas Eve.
But for those of you who think the lack of snow is a proverbial piece of coal, Mother Nature has another present lined up for you: A full moon.
According to WTNH, this will be the fourth Christmas full moon since 1900 and the first one since 1977. If you want to check it out, it will rise in the sky on Christmas Eve and be at its peak at 3AM on Christmas morning.
And check it out, you should. As you’ve probably gathered, a Christmas full moon is a rare event and it won’t happen again until 2034. So head outside on Christmas Eve, skip the bundling up because it’ll probably be 60 degrees, and watch for Santa’s silhouette in this rare celestial phenomenon.
