Full Moon in winter. Computer artwork of a full Moon over an icy winter landscape. A full Moon occurs when the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth to the Sun. Sunlight reflecting from the Moon shows details such as the lunar maria (seas, dark areas of volcanic rocks). The Moon takes around 28 days to orbit the Earth, passing from new to full and back again.
