Full Cold Moon - UPDATE December 11, 2019

The last full moon of the 2010’s, known as the Cold Moon, will reach its peak overnight at 12:12 AM EST 12-12-19 (that’s 11:12 AM Bear Time on 12-11-19). I suspect that no bears around here will see it.Ful Moon photo by NASAFul Moon photo by NASA With temperatures forecast to be well below zero F, they will have their heads tucked under their chests keeping their muzzles warm and re-breathing the moist warm air they are exhaling into their nests. Their hind legs will be tight against their sides to block drafts, and their front legs will be crossed in front of them doing the same. Snow that has built up around den entrances will further block their view. So this view is for us. The photo is by NASA, and it won’t look like that to us.

Thank you for all you do.
