  • Supermoon wows New Mexicans another set for January 31

This happens when the earth is in a position between the moon and the soon which blots out the view of the moon.

The world was treated to a stellar show to start 2018 as the year's first supermoon appeared on New Year's Day. It has also been dubbed as the "wolf moon".

This NASA chart by eclipse expert Fred Espenak details the visibility range and times for the January 31, 218 total lunar eclipse, which also occurs during a blue moon and near a supermoon.

According to NASA, a blue moon happens every two-and-a-half years. The reddish color of the eclipsed moon earned it the name Blood Moon.

SOMERSET skygazers were treated to "the biggest and brightest" supermoon of the year as it rose across the United Kingdom on New Year's Day. Secondly, the moon will be a supermoon.

The way the light filters through the atmosphere during an eclipse causes the blue light to bounce away from the moon, reflecting red light.

If you miss this total eclipse, you'll have to wait until the Blue Moon passes through Earth's umbra again on December 31, 2028 and again on January 31, 2037, which isn't 150 years from now but is still a fairly long wait to see something so cool. Both of these eclipses will be total.

The moon is going to be a spectacular sight on January 31. "The lunar eclipse on January 31 will be visible during moonset".

What is a blue moon?

"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 from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre.

By definition, a Supermoon is a full moon that appears when the moon reaches its closest orbital point to Earth.

Unless you are a regular moon-watcher, you may not notice anything different about this full moon.

The super blue blood moon eclipse will be visible anywhere that it's night-time, although some regions of the globe will only be able to see a partial eclipse.
