Last full moon of 2020 lights up night sky in Greece

The last full moon to end 2020 is known as the 'Cold Moon', and began to appear on Tuesday in some countries and will continue to appear full until Thursday in others, according to the NASA website.

According to the old Farmers Almanac website, it has also been referred to as the 'Long Night Moon', by the native American Mohican tribe, as it is closest to the winter solstice and will shine above the horizon for longer than most full moons.

In the coastal town of Rafina near Athens, the full moon added a special touch to the Christmas light decorations in the town square.
