Supermoons, meteor shower to light up the sky this January

First Blue Moon total eclipse in 150 years coming this month Supermoons, meteor shower to light up the sky this January

Besides another full moon on January 31, that moon will also be a Supermoon and a total lunar eclipse.

It will appear slightly bigger than a normal full moon, and it might appear to be significantly brighter than a full moon.

The first supermoon of 2018 has been seen in Cornwall and the photos are attractive.

The largest supermoon of the year will be visible in the skies over Taiwan this evening (Jan. 2) and will be followed lunar eclipse at the end of the month, according to the Astronomical Observatory under the Central Weather Bureau (CWB).

The eclipse will start around 4:50 a.m. local time and will be partial about an hour later, making the moon appear red. Check out The Virtual Telescope Project or Slooh.com, which livestreams supermoons.

The best viewing will be from a tall structure because the moon will be so low on the horizon.

The largest recent supermoon occurred in previous year.

Twitter users around the world have shared images of the January 1 supermoon. That means skywatchers will see the moon about 14% largers and about 30% brighter than a regular moon. 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. The first full moon of 2018 will be a supermoon, and will occur on Tuesday.

The good news... you will not have to wait long at all.

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). But this moon won't appear as bright as last November's supermoon, which was the closest the moon had been to the Earth in 68 years. To take a photo, fit your camera with a telephoto lens and lengthen the shutter time and increase the sensitivity (ISO) to compensate for the lower nighttime light.
