This image of the last full moon of December 2023 looks to me as though the moon is transforming into a light bulb.

In addition to the name given in the explanation, another name for it, no doubt among many is The Long Night Moon. Both note the arrival of winter.

And what a setting to view it in.

Here is a story about this moon from the Hindustan Times (December 26, 2023), "a brief guide for moon lovers."
