Thomas snapped this photo over Newquay on New Year's Day evening, showing the harbour bathed in moonlight. The moon tonight is called a Supermoon as it will approach a little closer and be a little brighter than other full moons of 2018-though most folks will have a hard time telling the difference. The phenomenon occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit.
PAGASA, however, said the moon appearing with a tinge of blue, may occur in certain atmospheric conditions like during volcanic eruptions or when exceptionally large fires leave particles in the atmosphere.
In the United Kingdom, the peak point was just before 2.30am on Tuesday but we reckon it looked pretty impressive earlier in the evening!
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 full moon on January 2 was also a super moon because it was within 361,000 kms. It appears 14% bigger than normal and is therefore pretty spectactular and attracts a lot of attention.
The best time to see the full supermoon is right after moonrise, when it is just getting up above the horizon, timeanddate.com says. "On the night of January 1, those living close to the 20-degree latitude would have seen the shadows of vertical objects disappear for a while, as the moon passed from overhead".
Don't expect a blue color, though, the event has nothing to with the color of the moon.
"The best thing about this, with lunar eclipses it doesn't matter where you are because the moon is so bright and visible", Bonadurer said.
Noah Petro, a research scientist from Nasa's Goddard Space Flight Center, said the three supermoons were flawless chances to get into sky gazing.
The January 31 supermoon will also be the second full moon of the month, often referred to as the "blue moon", which happen every two and a half years, on average. That was the first and only supermoon of 2017. The next supermoon will be on January 31.
January 2018 will have not one but two full moons.
