Full 'Wolf Moon' to illuminate sky tonight

December's Full Cold Supermoon as seen at sea in the Atlantic

A supermoon will be visible in the skies over OR on New Year's Night, providing the illusion of being a larger moon.

The first full moon of 2018 will reach its peak tonight between January 1 and 2 - at around 2.24am. This will also occur during a total lunar eclipse which also takes place on January 31, 2018. The supermoon on January 31 will feature a total lunar eclipse, with totality viewable from western North America across the pacific to Eastern Asia.

"The phrase has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon, although a literal "blue moon" (the moon appearing with a tinge of blue) may occur in certain atmospheric conditions; such as when there are volcanic eruptions or when exceptionally large fires leave particles in the atmosphere", PAGASA explained.

But if you miss tonight's moon - never fear, the January 31 moon will be "extra special" according to Nasa.

Thick Fog engulfs Delhi-NCR, many trains and flights cancelled
Save for a couple of worldwide flights, all other flights that were heading North were delayed, they said. The heavy blanket of fog engulfed the national capital region on the New Year morning.

This will be the "biggest full moon of 2018".

Here's the time to watch Moon-Rise. The phenomenon occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit.

The moon is at its closest point to Earth - known as the perigee - around 221,600 miles away. "Like when you go from 100 to 150 watts; I thought the moon was going to appear noticeably brighter last night, but it really wasn't at all!"

This evening, pictures show the blood-red moon rising over Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear.

For instance, 88-inch 4K LED TV will set you back by $20,000 and you can imagine how much expensive the new LG 8K TV will be. If one goes by the resolution, this will be the highest resolution OLED display and the largest one ever.

It was a good year for the moon. It was the closest approach to Earth since 1948.

The moon was visible from Earth with the naked eye, just as it always is.

Full moons on January 1 and 31 will be followed by full moons on March 1 and March 31.

"The best thing about this, with lunar eclipses it doesn't matter where you are because the moon is so bright and visible", Bonadurer said. In fact, we have two full moons this month, and both of them will be Supermoons!
