New year, blue Moon

Super Blue Blood Moon Supermoon Winter View

Because there's another full moon January 31.

There will be more than just fireworks lighting up the night sky this New Year across Greater Manchester.

Each full moon of the year has been given various names by different cultures around the world.

The first full moon will happen the evening of January 1 or the morning of January 2, thinking of where you are.

Most days the moon is almost 238,855 miles from Earth, but during the supermoon it will be approximately 223,068 miles away, according to NASA.

However, there are some around the globe who won't experience it until the morning of February 1, which means it technically will not be a blue moon for them.

And I still don't, listen, you guys know I was here. "I don't think the guy wants to fight", White mused. White tells us. he's gunning to promote boxing in 2018 - but he's not targeting a Floyd vs.

Native Americans knew the full moon of January as the Wolf Moon, a time when wolves roamed the edges of the village in search of whatever food they might find.

The supermoon will happen the evening of January 30.

Skywatchers in Western North America and Eastern Asia will also be able to catch a total lunar eclipse that evening, as the moon passes into the Earth's shadow.

And as a post by NASA on the "supermoon trilogy" explains, the January 31 supermoon will be definitely worth taking a look at.

Even after the ball drops at midnight on December 31, the new year will bring another big, bright, shining orb at the start of 2018. It'll be the first of 2018 and it will be closely followed by another at the end of the month, the celestial event known as a blue moon. This means the 31st's supermoon will be a "super blue blood" moon, according to NASA. These happen about twice a year, when the the moon lines up with the Earth and Sun so that Earth totally blocks the sun's light that we see reflected on the moon.

This Blue Moon will be special since it will occur during a total lunar eclipse. "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, supervising research assistant at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
