2018 is starting off big and bright, as the sky will play host to a "supermoon" Monday night.

Tha January full moon occurs today, beginning at 4 p.m. It will also have the distinction of being the second full moon of the month, and the second supermoon of the month, making it a "Super Blue Moon". A supermoon appears bigger and brighter than a full moon.

For the January 31 total eclipse of the blue moon, viewers will be able to see it early in the morning though in Wisconsin it will be low in the western sky.

This will be the "biggest full moon of 2018". When added to the glow of a full moon, the difference is hardly perceptible to the human eye. And the margin for a supermoon seems to be widening, as full moons that occur within one or two days of perigee are sometimes given the "super" moniker. I think overall, when the skies allow, the moon should make it seem a lot brighter outside along with the snow.

There are no full moons during February this year. In Milwaukee the eclipse will start at 5:48 a.m. and totality will begin at 6:51 a.m. and last until the moon sets at 7:06 a.m., said Bonadurer.

Beach shack operators had complained about a lack of warning earlier this month, after a combination of cyclone Ockhi and Supermoon wrecked havoc on the beaches, with the rising water damaging several beach shacks and eroding beach stretches, popular with tourists.

A supermoon occurs when the moon is full at the same time it reaches perigee, or that point in the moon's orbit when it is closest to Earth.

The largest recent supermoon occurred in previous year. The moon won't come that close to Earth again until November 24, 2034.

But do not worry if you missed it, there will be a second chance to see the supermoon at the end of January. If you want the best view of the moon, get as far away from ambient light as possible.
