Cloverdale resident Udo Zirkwitz sent in this photo of Dec. 25th’s full moon, dubbed the Santa or Christmas moon, peeking out from behind a thin cloud.

A full moon occurring on Christmas Day is something that hasn’t happened since 1977 – and won’t happen again until 2034, according to the Weather Network.
