Weather scientists have just announced that there will be full moon on Christmas morning, with the moon expected to reach its fullest size possible by 6:11 am ET on December 25.

The last time this phenomenon was witnessed was in 1977, and NASA scientists say the next time it will be recorded again will be December 25 of 2034.

The phenomenon is known as Full Cold Moon, and some Native American tribes call it the Long Nights Moon – largely because it ushers in the longest night of the year.

The winter solstice is expected to kick in at nearly the same period, but this will occur in the Northern Hemisphere by 11:48 am ET on December 22.

This event was first reported on DSCOVRD, and the event signifies that Santa and his reindeer might have more light this year.
