Cullman Supermoon On New Years Night

The moon will appear to be 16 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter tonight The moon will appear to be 16 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter tonight

And NASA says that this moon won't even be the most spectacular. 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.

The last in this series of Supermoons will be on January 31st which will make it not only a "Supermoon" but also a "Blue Moon" since it'll be the second full-moon occurring in a month's time. "Nearby perigee full Moons appear about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than full Moons that occur near apogee in the Moon's orbit".

'Often cast in a reddish hue because of the way the atmosphere bends the light, totally eclipsed Moons are sometimes called "blood Moons"'.

What is so "Super" about the moon tonight?

NASA tweeted about the Moon earlier in the day to whet people's appetites.

Panaji/Mumbai: Here's a New Year treat for those who love stargaze. There are 235 full moons during the 228 months of the 19-year period which means at least seven of those months will have two full moons. But not always. It happened in 1999 and 1961 and won't occur again until 2037 and 2094.

January full moons are also known as Wolf Moons, according to Live Science. Blue Moon was used in years with 13 full moons.

Hopefully skies will be clear for the second lunar event in January.

Meanwhile, a lunar eclipse, a point at which the moon passes behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow), will begin at 6:51 p.m. on January 31 and will be best observed in Taiwan between 8:51 p.m.to 10:08 p.m., said the observatory. For Eastern time (EST) in the U.S., residents in that region will see the eclipse begin at 6:48 AM and the moon will dip out of view shortly thereafter.

The popular astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson probably said it best: "In the overall scheme of things, is this relatively small increase in the moon's apparent size really so meaningful?"

If you're planning to try to view the super, red, blue moon at the end of the month pick out your location well in advance and arrive about an hour before the beginning of the eclipse to catch the penumbral and partial eclipse as well.
