An illustration of the night sky on Dec. 07 showing the full Cold Moon in close proximity to Mars.

Mars in opposition will meet the full moon next week (December 7). Here’s how to see it

Every once in a while, something will appear in the sky that will catch the attention of even those who normally don’t bother to look up.

This will likely be so on the evening of Wednesday, December 7, when the full moon appears in close proximity to the now bright planet Mars. In fact, the moon will become full at 11:08 p.m. EST (04:08 GMT on December 8), followed by Mars arriving at the sun’s opposition just 87 minutes later. This will result in near perfect alignment in space of the sun, earth, moon, and mars.
