Rare full moon an added gift for holidays, NASA says

John Keller is deputy project scientist for NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission, which has been orbiting the moon, and studying the lunar surface since 2009. A full moon rises next to a digital stock market feed in London's Trafalgar Square, Thursday, Dec. 24, 2015. It's also sometimes called the "Full Oak Moon" - a name which dates from ancient pagan ceremonies which focused on the spiritual significance of the oak tree, and took place at the time of the December full moon.

Microsoft launches app store on Android platform

It also has 21 medical and health apps in the Google Play Android store. However, it couldn't achieve the similar topmost position when it comes to the mobile phones sphere. Microsoft Apps contains links to around 80 apps. With Windows 10, Microsoft sees the OS as more of a service and the idea is to ensure that its apps are used across platforms, which explains why they've clubbed together all their Android apps into this form.
