January 31's supermoon will occur during a total lunar eclipse. (Unlike an eclipse, a supermoon is visible world-wide.) That's a bit frightening considering we're in the middle of a supermoon bonanza.
The first of the two supermoons, nicknamed wolf moon, will appear on the night of 1 January, while the second, a "super blue blood" moon, will appear with a blood-like reddish hue on 31 January.
For those still nursing a hangover the night of January 1, an even more intriguing supermoon will rise the night of January 31.
No matter what the rest of the New Year brings, earthlings are in for a double treat in January with the appearance of two supermoons. The position makes it appear approximately 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual, making for a spectacular sight to be observed in night-time.
The Jan. 1 supermoon will be the biggest of the year.
The difference between a supermoon and a regular full moon isn't always easy to tell - though if you could put a supermoon next to a micromoon, a full moon at the part of its orbit furthest from Earth, you'd see it. A Blue Moon happens about once in 2.7 years, according to Space.com. It happens as the moon comes closer to Earth than it has done for 69 years. You definitely don't want to miss this rare gem! So prepare yourself for the super blue blood moon the night of the lunar eclipse. You're out of luck if you're on the East Coast, though. "Folks in the Eastern United States, where the eclipse will be partial, will have to get up in the morning to see it", Petro added.
South Florida, and most of the eastern USA, will not be in the best position to see the total lunar eclipse because it will occur closer to moonset when the moon is lower on the western horizon. This moon will also be a blood moon.
The Moon will lose its brightness and take on an eerie, fainter-than-normal glow from the scant sunlight that makes its way through Earth's atmosphere.
Supermoons are not unusual, but what is exceptional is that the January 31 supermoon is the second full moon in a month, and the moon will experience a total lunar eclipse, according to Paige Godfrey, director of research and education at the online astronomy website Slooh.
