A bright full moon rose behind Greece’s most famous monument, the Parthenon temple on the Acropolis Hill. December’s supermoon is remarkable as it coincides on the same night as the peak of the Geminid meteor shower but unfortunately for skywatchers that will mean that the bright moonlight will reduce visibility “five to ten fold,” according to a statement from NASA, with fewer than a dozen Geminids visible per hour.
