Wolf Super Moon January First And Other Moony Stuff

first_imgJanuary 2018 will have two full moons. There will not be a full moon in February but there will be two full moons in March. Monday at 5 P.M. the moon will be 221,588 miles from the earth. This is the closest the moon has been been to the earth since 1998. Officially at 9:24 p.m. Eastern Time the moon will be a full moon. This will be the biggest full moon of 2018 and is thus dubbed as being the Wolf Moon. The size of the moon will be 7.3 percent larger than normal. This is hard to notice a larger moon unless you are expecting it. The larger size is most easily detected just as the moon rises or sets on a distant horizon. On January 31st there will be another Full Moon which will be called a “Blue Moon” (just like the song says) However the Blue Moon this January will coincide with a total lunar eclipse. On March First there will be another full moon which is called a Worm Moon. The second full moon in March will be on the 31st. Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson stated the difference will be about the same as comparing a 14 inch pizza to a 15 inch pizza.last_img read more
