Let’s build a rocket and take a holiday to a place with lots of cheese… 🚀🌕🧀
Yesterday, Kaspars and I hiked through the snow to one of the most geothermally active areas in Iceland. It was -13°C on the mostly uphill trek to the Hellisheiði plateau but worth all the pain to witness the last full moon of 2020 and also the final full moon of the decade, rising over Lake Thingvellir (Þingvallavatn).
In the Northern Hemisphere, the last moon of the year is often described as the Cold Moon. It is also known as the Long Night Moon, Ice Moon, Old Moon, or the Moon After Yule.
This was the 13th full moon of the year, as the lunar cycle in October gave us two full moons in a month. Normally, there are only twelve full moons in a year.
On this special note, I’d like to wish you all a lot of love, joy and good health in 2021. Happy new year! Or as we say in Icelandic… Gleðilegt nýtt ár! 🎉
