Luke 21:25,26 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.
Astronomy enthusiasts will receive an added gift this Christmas.
For the first time in 38 years, a full moon will be visible on Christmas morning.
According to NASA, the full moon will peak at 6:31 a.m. EST on Christmas Day. That means people getting up to head to an early mass or open presents will see a historic sight in the sky.
The last Christmas full moon occurred in 1977, NASA reports. To put that in perspective, other notable things to happen that year include the incorporation of Apple Computer, Jimmy Carter becoming president, the release of the original Star Wars movie and the death of Elvis Presley.
NASA says another full moon won’t be visible on Dec. 25 until 2034.
