NEW YEAR SUPERMOON 2018
Art "THE SPIRIT OF MOON" by @msanhuezacelsi

2018 surprises us with a supermoon on Monday,  the first of two "supermoons" in January nicknamed a Wolf Moon.  This supermoon is actually the second of three back-to-back supermoon full moons to come only in two months. A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that approximately coincides with the closest distance that the Moon reaches to Earth in its elliptic orbit, resulting in a larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system. The term supermoon is not astronomical but originated in modern astrology. The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the supermoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events like earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but there is no such link.

The supermoon is here! Be sure to bundle up then lead your “pack” outside to view the #WolfMoon ,the most super of the three supermoons... 





The opposite phenomenon, an apogee syzygy, has been called a micromoon, though this term is not as widespread as supermoon.

The most recent supermoon occurrence was on December 3, 2017, and the next one will be on January 2, 2018. The one on November 14, 2016 was the closest supermoon since January 26, 1948, and will not be surpassed until November 25, 2034.  The closest supermoon of the century will occur on December 6, 2052.

Occasionally, a supermoon coincides with a total lunar eclipse. The most recent occurrence of this was in September 2015, while the next one will be in January 2018.








SUPERMOON

The name supermoon was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, arbitrarily defined as:


    ... a new or full moon which occurs with the Moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit (perigee). In short, Earth, Moon and Sun are all in a line, with Moon in its nearest approach to Earth.


Nolle also claimed that the moon causes "geophysical stress" during the time of a supermoon. Nolle never outlined why he chose 90%.

The term perigee-syzygy or perigee full/new moon is preferred in the scientific community.[18] Perigee is the point at which the Moon is closest in its orbit to the Earth, and syzygy is when the Earth, the Moon and the Sun are aligned, which happens at every full or new moon. Hence, a supermoon can be regarded as a combination of the two, although they do not perfectly coincide each time.


 Natural disasters
 There is no correlation between supermoons and major earthquakes. Regardless of the evidence, there has been media speculation that natural disasters, such as the 2011 TŇćhoku earthquake and tsunami and the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, are causally linked with the 1–2 week period surrounding a supermoon. A large, 7.5 magnitude earthquake centred 15 km north-east of Culverden, New Zealand at 00:03 NZDT on November 14, 2016, also coincided with a supermoon.

 Supermoons can appear 30 percent brighter and up to 14 percent larger than typical full moons. <a href="http://www.space.com/11161-supermoon-full-moon-science-infographic.html">Learn what makes a big full moon a true 'supermoon' in this Space.com infographic</a>.


 When the "Full Wolf Moon" rises on Monday, Jan. 1, it will also be the first of two "supermoons" in 2018, both of them in January.  

The moon becomes full at 9:24 p.m. EST (0224 GMT Tuesday Jan. 2). That peak comes hours after the moon reaches perigee, its closest point to Earth for the month, at 4:54 p.m. EST (2154 GMT). At that time, according to EarthSky.org, the moon will be about 221,559 miles (356,565 kilometers) from Earth.

January's supermoon is actually the second of three back-to-back supermoon full moons to come in the next two months. The full moon also occurred near perigee on Dec. 3 and will again on Jan. 31, according to NASA, which billed the line up as a supermoon trilogy. The Jan. 31 supermoon is also the second full moon of January, making it a blue moon, and also occurs during a total lunar eclipse.
