Supermoon

The first full moon of the year falls on January 20th or 21st, depending on where you are in the world.  This moon is one that is extremely powerful as there will be two special events happening at the same time.  Not only is the moon a Supermoon (which means the moon will appear about 14% larger), but there will also be a total eclipse. As the moon travels through the earth’s shadow it will appear to be orangish red. The colour is really caused by ashes, fire, and pollution, but will add a beautiful touch to an an already amazing night sky. The January full moon is known as the wolf moon, but with the addition of the eclipse it is being called the Rare Blood Wolf Moon. A magical beginning to the new year!!
