Supermoon tomorrow, a blue moon on January 31; sea surge expected

Sky gazers will be able to see the first supermoon of the year Monday night, and it is set to the brightest one of the year, according to NASA. Occasionally, there will be two full moons in a month, called a "blue moon".

Miss tonight's moon? There will be another supermoon on January 31 and there will be a total eclipse then, too.

"The supermoons are a great opportunity for people to start looking at the moon, not just that once but every chance they have", said Noah Petro, a research scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. It appears a bit brighter than a standard full moon, although weather conditions play a bigger role in its visibility.

There is also a monthly lunar cycle where we can see varying amounts of the moon depending on it's position relative to Earth and the Sun.

Supply discipline and demand to prop up oil prices in 2018
West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $60.16 a barrel at 0210 GMT, up 33 cents or 0.5 percent from their last close. Inventories are now down by nearly 20% from their historic highs last March and well below this time previous year or in 2015.

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

This makes the moon appears a lot bigger and brighter compared to a normal full moon. Monday, our lunar companion reaches an extreme perigee distance of 221,559 miles.

This evening, pictures show the blood-red moon rising over Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear. The term gives preference to the geometric alignment of Sun-Earth-Moon and allows the occurrence of perigee into a wider time period than the actual instant of perigee (up to about two weeks, which is nearly half of the Moon's orbit).

"Comparing a supermoon with a typical full moon from memory is very hard", he said.

The moon tonight will appear red to many in the United Kingdom because of the way the atmosphere bends the light bouncing off the moon. But it will occur very late, when the moon is close to the earth's horizon. It was the closest approach to Earth since 1948. The Full Moon phase will occur 4.5 hours later at 7.54 am.

Another Supermoon is on the calendar for January 31, 2018.

"As long as it's clear out, you'll have no trouble seeing the moon at all", she said.
