At Christmas this year, you may be able to see a full moon. In fact, this will be the first full moon for over 38 years and the last time we had one of these, they just released Star Wars: A New Hope. That was back in 1977! With The Force Awakens being released this year, it is certainly interesting to see how coincidentally this has happened.

The moon will be fully illuminated on Sunday at 6:11am EST or 11:11am at GMT. This will be on Friday the 25th of December and it is certainly something that you should look out for. On Christmas Eve, you will also be able to see the ISS travel through the skies so there is certainly a lot happening over the next coming days! Keep an eye out!
