  • First Blue Moon total eclipse in 150 years coming this month

The January 31 supermoon will also be the second full moon of the month, often referred to as the "blue moon", which happen every two and a half years, on average. This is the biggest full moon of 2018. Those in our area will see the first Supermoon of 2018 early Monday morning then again Monday night into Tuesday morning. The eclipse will be full around 6 a.m., about 50 minutes before sunrise on February 1. The supermoon on January 31 will feature a total lunar eclipse, with totality viewable from western North America across the pacific to Eastern Asia. Peak viewing times for the rising of the moon are 5:04 p.m.in San Francisco, 4:34 p.m.in New York City, 6:06 p.m.in Honolulu, and 4:15 p.m.in Anchorage, Alaska.

With the moon being as close to Earth as it is, there is a significant impact on the tides.

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

Tonight's supermoon will reach its fullest phase at 9:24 p.m.

The largest recent supermoon occurred in past year. Check out The Virtual Telescope Project or Slooh.com, which livestreams supermoons. The next supermoon will be on January 31. That means skywatchers will see the moon about 14% largers and about 30% brighter than a regular moon.

He said: "Supermoons occur when the full moon is at perigee". Today's moon is expected to be 16 percent brighter and 7 percent larger than normal.

In case you don't remember, a "supermoon" occurs when the moon appears bigger and brighter in the sky. Hopefully, some of you can share a better version.

As the moon orbits the Earth every month, there is a point in every cycle where the moon is closest (perigee) and a point where it's farthest away (apogee). To take a photo, fit your camera with a telephoto lens and lengthen the shutter time and increase the sensitivity (ISO) to compensate for the lower nighttime light.
