Timelapse Shows Cold Moon Rising Over Brooklyn

The Cold Moon appeared in the sky over New York City on Tuesday, December 29, which was both the final and longest full-moon night of 2020.

Timelapse footage captured by John Huntington shows the moon as it moves across the sky over Brooklyn before it reached its peak.

Speaking to Storyful, Huntington said he filmed this video from his roof deck in the Windsor Terrace neighborhood at around 5 pm.

According to NASA, the moon officially became full at 10.28 pm and stayed in the sky for at least 15 hours. The Cold Moon derives its name from the Maine Farmer’s Almanac. It is also the lunar event closest to the winter solstice. Credit: John Huntington via Storyful
