    The Full Cold Moon seen through the star of a Christmas tree in Beirut, Lebanon today.

Skygazers got an extra present early this morning — a rare full moon to brighten Christmas skies.

A full moon on Christmas hasn’t happened since 1977 and won’t happen again until 2034, according to the NASA website.

The last full moon of the year is called the Full Cold Moon because it occurs during the beginning of winter.

The full moon peaked in Hawaii at about 1:11 a.m.

It will rise again tonight at 6:41 p.m.
