Christmas Eve night, photographer Eleanor P. Labrozzi took this image looking toward Bridge Street of a remarkable event.

As Eleanor wrote to us: “This was the first full moon on Christmas in nearly 40 years – since 1977, to be exact. According to astronomers, it won’t happen again until 2034. Certain  Native American groups call this phenomenon the ‘Cold Moon,’ because of  its closeness to the winter solstice.”
