"Just after the sunset, got a fantastic view of the moon from the terrace. As times passed, the slight variation in the colour was noticeable. It was cold, but that's how it should be on a 'Cold Moon' Night," Duari said.

Explaining the naming of 'cold moon night' he said in a Facebook post, "because of the winter season, it is called the Cold Moon and since it is happening near to the Winter Solstice (December 21 this year), moon will also be on the sky for a longer time than the average, and hence also termed as, especially in the Northern latitudes as the long Night Full Moon".
