December’s full moon is marking the end of the decade in a unique way.

It will reach peak fullness at 12:12 a.m. Eastern time on the 12th day of the 12th month of the year, according to NASA.

The full moon will last for about three days, according to Pagasa.

The full moon each December is sometimes known as the “Cold Moon,” appearing as the Northern Hemisphere enters its coldest months of the year.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the Algonquin tribes in the northern and eastern United States first named December’s full moon the Cold Moon. It’s also been called the Long Night Moon by Europeans because of its proximity to the winter solstice — the longest night of the year.
