A NASA email I got today tells that the full moon on christmas eve will be looking especially bright as it will be the highest riding full moon we will see again until 2023. They also mention Mars will be visable all night long, is the closest it will be to Earth for 9 yrs and is "at opposition". It should be a real treat and I will be sure to enjoy it. Then again we haven't seen our last three full moons here because of heavy clould cover so if we do see it we certainly deserve to.

This week's (17-23 Dec) What's Up at Universe Today mentions - scroll down to the 22 Dec entry - that the moon is at perigree, its closest approach to earth.  A thread on Bad Astronomy/Universe Today's forums mentions that some folks will get to see an occultation of Mars by the moon at full moon; according to the linked map, I'm one of them.  But I'm not finding any mentions anywhere of it being unusually high.  And I checked several places, including space.com and the NASA site.

When I started checking, I expected to find it; by my personal observations, the moon looks quite high.

As far as I can see on the NASA site, they don't offer an email newsletter.  I'd probably sign up for it if they did (I signed up for one at space.com while I was checking on this; between that and finding out about the occultation, I feel my time was spent fruitfully), so I'd love to hear more from Athystle about the email she got - I may be missing something.

Come to my neck of the woods.  These winter skywatch notices are just a cruel joke...not to mention most of the spring and autumn ones...

The almost full moon is glaringly bright here tonight---a bit south of you.  And Mars has been dazzling high in the sky at this hour of the night....figures it might not be quite such a show tomorrow night, lol.

Yes, "our" skywatch is mostly "Look outside...see clouds, forget about the rest."

I've been getting a nasa email thingy for 3 yrs. I dont know how to do the link thing but I put the complete address to the one I got on a post to Warhorses comment. Hope that helps. They do say the highest. If there is something on my email that says how to subscribe I will make another post. I didn't think to look , Iwill do that right now.

It was partly cloudy and cold here last night too.  And yes, Mars has put on quite a show.  I suspect that's all we're due for, so I guess I'll take the almost-full moon, in the partly cloudy sky, the day before the Solstice.  Wink

Haven't seen the moon for at least the last 3 nights.  Last night was foggy, tonight isFOGGY- 1/4 mi or less visabilty, and the next night or 3 3 are supposed to be rain and clouds. 

This early winter wether will end sometime and maybe we will have a bunch of clear nights.

Yup, that's what it says, all right.  Odd that there's not a peep about it elsewhere, but, hey, that's why I'm subscribed to more than one newsletter, and have a bunch of links - not everything gets mentioned everywhere.

Thank you for providing that link, and thanks to Star for fixing it - it had a "subscribe" button right there, so I did.  It seems to me that the NASA site isn't as easily navigable as it used to be - I'm sure I remember it having link-names that were more obvious than what it has now.

All in all, though, I'm glad I had trouble finding it, because in hunting about I found other things I might not have otherwise.
