Cold Moon for cold weather

Cold Moon or Long Nights Moon

Burnham Lake in Baguio City

A perfect full moon—the last full moon of the decade (top)—is seen early Thursday morning over Luzon. Called the Cold Moon or Long Nights Moon, it is distinctive for its high trajectory across the sky, causing it to sit above the horizon for a longer period of time, experts say. It matches the cold weather over Burnham Lake in Baguio City, which posted a low of 11.8 degrees Celsius on Thursday, a condition the state weather bureau says will last until early March next year.
