Biggest Full Moon Of 2018 Rising On New Year's Day
02 January, 2018, 12:07 | Author: Harriet Bell
The first full moon of 2018 will be a supermoon, and will occur on Tuesday. The full moon on December 3 was "super", and the one later this month, on January 31, will be, too.
Aside from the lunar eclipse, there will also be a second full moon - also known as a blue moon - on January 31. A total lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes completely through the Earth's shadow.
But for those in North America, the eclipse will be visible before sunrise on January 31, according to EarthSky. It happens each month but tonight's moon is the closest of 2018.
A supermoon occurs when the moon is at the closest point to Earth on its monthly orbit, and as much of the moon as possible is visible. Monday, our lunar companion reaches an extreme perigee distance of 221,559 miles. "Like when you go from 100 to 150 watts; I thought the moon was going to appear noticeably brighter last night, but it really wasn't at all!" When these events coincide (a full moon at perigee), some people refer to the event as a "supermoon". This one showed the supermoon rising over Rome. For example in US Mountain time (MST), the eclipse will begin at 4:48 AM, but as the full eclipse winds down, the moon will already be dipping below the horizon. "It didn't look at all brighter than normal". It was the closest approach to Earth since 1948.
