Supermoon to usher in the new year

Supermoon to usher in the new year

Did you miss the full moon New Year's Day?

The Jan. 31 supermoon will also be referred to as a blue moon because it will be the second full moon of the month.

January ends with another supermoon that's also a blue moon - the term for the second full moon within a month.

During these events, the moon generally appears to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than a typical full moon. On Jan. 31, the moon will rise at 4:54 p.m. and be visible for almost 10 hours. This moon is also called the Wolf Moon. For Eastern time (EST) in the United States, residents in that region will see the eclipse begin at 6:48 AM and the moon will dip out of view shortly thereafter.

As the moon orbits the Earth every month, there is a point in every cycle where the moon is closest (perigee) and a point where it's farthest away (apogee). The moon's bright light will likely outshine numerous brightest Quadrantids. The moon will be about 221,600 miles from the Earth tonight, which is about 500 miles closer than where the moon was (distance-wise) last month when we had our last full moon, and super moon.

During bad weather, more trauma accidents seem to happen and there's a need for more blood. The response was huge, with hundreds of refugees wanting to give blood.

It was a good year for the moon.

Furthermore, there was a supermoon on December 3 and there will be yet another one on January 31 to complete the "Supermoon Trilogy" - much to the delight of photographers looking for creative opportunities.

This evening, pictures show the blood-red moon rising over Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear. "It didn't look at all brighter than normal". The Full Moon phase will occur 4.5 hours later at 7.54 am.

When the moon is closest, the tide will be at its highest, and the same happens with a new or full moon.

"As long as it's clear out, you'll have no trouble seeing the moon at all", she said.
