In welcoming the new Year 2018 this time, there is something unique for lovers of sky scenery. Moreover, those who work as researchers of the moon, certainly very enthusiastic with the phenomenon where the moon looks bigger than ordinary size. In January of 2018 there will be two phenomena supermoon named Wolf Moon and Blue Moon.

Wolf Moon



Wolf Moon or Moon Wolf is the nickname of the full moon given by the Indian tribe. They argue that the moon will come when the hungry wolves howl outside their camps.

According to Old Farmer's Almanac, Wolf Moon will start to look in the American area on January 1, 2018 at 9:24 pm. While in Europe and Asia, the full moon 'Wolf Moon' peak will be visible on 2 January 2018 and will continue to light up the night sky over the start of the new year.

This phenomenon occurs because the position of the moon's orbit is closer to the earth. As quoted from space.com, astronomers call the orbit of the moon adjacent to the earth as 'perigee'. Where the distance between the moon and the earth can reach 221,559 miles or about 356,565 kilometers. This will cause the full moon to look 7% larger than usual.

When it reaches full full-moon phase, Wolf Moon will be in the constellation Gemini, roughly along the line between Pollux (Beta Geminorum) and Betelgeuse (Alpha Orionis). The moon is so bright that it will make the sky as near the outer space.

Blue Moon & Blood Moon



The second Super Moon will again be present in the western sky of the United States, hawai and eastern asia. Perigee will reach 221,559 miles (356,565 kilometers) on January 30 because its orbit is not perfectly circular (sloping). In this blue moon period, the moon will look 11% larger than usual.

blood moon Full Moon on the night of January 31 will be followed by the appearance of a total lunar eclipse called the blood moon. For those in the western part of the country, the eastern and eastern islands, the opportunity to see the moon turns red as it enters the deepest part of the shadow of the earth during an eclipse. This is quite amazing because this rare phenomenon will adorn the sky on the eve of the new year 2018.

For a more amazing experience when viewing the moon, use tools such as telescopes or advanced cameras that can help us see the colors and light of the moon more clearly and safely.
