There will be more than just fireworks lighting up the night sky this New Year's.
A supermoon is the term given to full moons which occur at the same time as the moon reaches its closest point to Earth in orbit.
A supermoon is a new or full moon that appears bigger to the human eye because it is the closest to the Earth during its orbit. In this case, the Earth, the Sun and the Moon don't generally arrange themselves in a straight line to align the moon in the shadow of the Earth.
Another supermoon will take place on January 31, and according to NASA, it will also feature a total lunar eclipse. Really, this is the astrological event that is a true must-see in January. Since the Moon's orbital path is oval, one side is approximately 50,000 km far from the Earth. A blue moon is the term given to a full moon that occurs twice in the same month and only happens about once every two-and-a-half to three years, though it typically doesn't actually look any different than any other full moon.
And, that super/blue moon on January 31 will have a red sheen to it, because it will be part of a lunar eclipse, according to NASA.
That celestial event will be visible from western North America through the Pacific Ocean to eastern Asia, NASA says. Another nickname will come into play here, as totally eclipsed moons are sometimes called "blood moons". "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. The moon is pretty cool and worth looking at, no matter what: "The supermoons are a great opportunity for people to start looking at the Moon, not just that once but every chance they have!"
