The first full moon of 2018 will be a supermoon, and will occur on Tuesday. Don't worry, January will have another full moon this month, making it a "Blue Moon".

There will also be a total eclipse of the moon then, making the January 31 moon a super blue moon eclipse. Oddly enough, the blue moon will appear ruddy red for part of the night because of a total lunar eclipse when the moon passes through the Earth's shadow.

2018 will also bring another blue moon in March.

Daughter of police victim dies from brain damage

That is the point in the moon's elliptical orbit when it is closest to Earth and it makes for a pretty spectacular sight. Today, our lunar companion reaches an extreme perigee distance of 221,559 miles (356,565 kilometers).

So the moon won't be as bright, but it will "take on an eerie, fainter-than-normal glow", NASA says, and could take on a "reddish hue". The eclipse will start at 5:51 a.m. and will not be a full eclipse when the moon sets just after 7 a.m.

Another Supermoon is on the calendar for January 31, 2018. The last supermoon was the full moon of December 3, 2017.

Bills end 17-year playoff drought with win and help
In a nutshell: In their first meeting with the Dolphins two weeks ago, a fast start on offense helped carry the Bills to victory. Unsportsmanlike conduct penalties were called against both teams. -Tyrod Taylor went 19-27 for 204 yards and a touchdown.

This evening, pictures show the blood-red moon rising over Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear. It was the closest approach to Earth since 1948. It looks slightly larger and slightly brighter, and definitely catches the eye. But the European Space Agency offered an alternative to living on weather-plagued earth when it announced in September that some people could be moving to the moon by 2030, and whole families could be living in lunar colonies by 2050.

When the moon is closest, the tide will be at its highest, and the same happens with a new or full moon. If you want the best view of the moon, get as far away from ambient light as possible.
