January 2018 Brings Super Moons, Blood Moon, Blue Moon

Next month will bring a pair of supermoons, the first arriving on New Year's day, the other managing to slip in on the last day of the month.

It may seem like the 31st's moon is the lunar spectacle to keep your eyes on, but don't forget about the one on New Year's Day - it could be a great way to commemorate the start of 2018.

Even after two back-to-back holidays on Sunday and Monday, the film, a sequel of his 2012 hit film Ek Tha Tiger , earned Rs 21.6 crore on Tuesday.

The supermoon is a nickname of its own, referring to a full moon that appears larger and more luminous due to its increased proximity to the Earth. The moon will appear to turn a reddish color, hence why they're usually called blood moons - meaning this supermoon will be something like a three-for-one special.

Supermoons occur due to the fact that the moon is in a slightly elliptical orbit with Earth, rather than a flawless circle. On the night of January 30th, a blue moon will rise for much of the world, reaching fullness at approximately 8:27am EST on January 31st.

The Wolf Moon is part of a "trilogy" which started with December's Cold Moon and will end on January 31st when a third supermoon will also feature a total lunar eclipse which could make the moon appear red. The moon will be 223,068 miles, 358,994 in km from Earth.

The eclipse of the moon will happen the evening of January 31 or the morning of February 1. As an example, Space.com explained that in Melbourne, Australia, the first full moon comes on January 2 at 1:24 p.m. local time.

On average, we see blue moons every 2.7 years, but in 2018 there will be two blue moons in a single year. The celestial event will be viewable in totality from western North America to Eastern Asia. Lunar eclipses don't happen each month in light of the fact that the plane of the lunar orbit is somewhat tilted with respect to the plane of the Earth's orbit. "Folks in the Eastern United States, where the eclipse will be partial, will have to get up in the morning to see it", said Noah Petro, a research scientist from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
