Why The Full Moon Is Better In Winter by Minute Physics

MinutePhysics host Henry Reich explains why the full moon is so much better in winter.

A summer full moon is like a winter sun, only appearing for a few hours and staying close to the horizon but a winter full moon is like a summer sun, it’s up for a long time and takes a higher path across the sky. In the darkest months, the moon, at least when it’s full, gives us long beautifully lit nights.
