One side of a moon (apogee) is generally 50,000 kilometres further away from Earth than the other (perigee).
However, due to a phenomenon called the "moon illusion" the moon may appear bigger when it's close to the horizon, so this supermoon may appear bigger when it's rising. The full moon is the first of three consecutive supermoons.
If you were unable to catch the "supermoon" earlier this month, your'e in luck. "It will be extra special", NASA added. Go figure. This total eclipse, which will occur when the sun enters the path of the bright supermoon, will be visible from western North America, the Pacific, and Eastern Asia.
Because of this rare coincidence, the event has been given on a long, tongue-twister of a name: a super blue blood moon.
The Moon will lose its brightness and take on an eerie, fainter-than-normal glow from the scant sunlight that makes its way through Earth's atmosphere.
The first of the two supermoons, nicknamed wolf moon, will appear on the night of 1 January, while the second, a "super blue blood" moon, will appear with a blood-like reddish hue on 31 January. The moon looks larger and brighter than average at these times, but many people may not notice the difference with this New Year's moon. With the total eclipse, it'll be a royal spectacle indeed: "a 'super blue blood" Moon.
