The first full moon of 2018 will be a supermoon, and will occur on Tuesday.

The moon is called blue because it's the second full moon in the month and it's red because it's going to be eclipsed.

The Jan. 31 supermoon will also be referred to as a blue moon because it will be the second full moon of the month.

This month's total lunar eclipse is said to be extraordinary as it will be the first total eclipse of a blue moon in 150 years, according to Space.com.

Stargazers tonight will see that the moon appears to be both bigger and brighter tonight.

Meanwhile, a lunar eclipse, a point at which the moon passes behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow), will begin at 6:51 p.m. on January 31 and will be best observed in Taiwan between 8:51 p.m.to 10:08 p.m., said the observatory.

If skies are clear, Bonadurer will bring the museum's telescopes to the roof of the Urban Ecology Center at Riverside Park, 1500 E. Park Place, from 5:30 a.m.to 7 a.m. on January 31 for anyone who wants to see the blue moon total eclipse.

Winston throws late TD pass, Buccaneers beat Saints 31-24
Tampa Bay had taken the opening kickoff and driven 75 yards in 14 plays for a touchdown and 7-0 lead. For the Saints it's time to look at the film of Tampa, and then move on quickly to Carolina.

Here's the time to watch Moon-Rise.

A supermoon is a full moon which occurs when the Moon is closest to the Earth, making it appear bigger and brighter. Monday, our lunar companion reaches an extreme perigee distance of 221,559 miles. This one showed the supermoon rising over Rome.

When the moon is closest, the tide will be at its highest, and the same happens with a new or full moon.

The moon will technically be considered 100 percent full a 9:24 p.m. The moon will be blocked out by the earth's shadow. That means skywatchers will see the moon about 14% largers and about 30% brighter than a regular moon.

And if you miss Monday's supermoon, the wait won't be long as another will take place on January 31. It was the closest approach to Earth since 1948.

The good news... you will not have to wait long at all. The next full moon will come on 7 February at 4.54pm so it's not quite as much of a late night.
