The first Full Moon of 2018 is a Supermoon that will occur on New Year's Day, Monday, January 1, 2018, beginning with a moonrise over the Atlantic at 5:30 p.m.

Lunar eclipses make moons appear blood red because of the way the blocked sunlight bends.
During a lunar eclipse, the moon moves into Earth's shadow, so the only light reaching the moon's surface is reflected off the Earth's atmosphere.
Having two full moons in 1 month makes the next one a blue moon - so the January 31 lunar spectacle will be a "super blue blood" moon. A partial eclipse will begin at 6:48 a.m. on January 31, but the moon will duck away before totality occurs.
