The first Full Moon of 2018

Today we celebrate New Year and the first Full Moon of the year 2018. In January it is closest to Earth of this year. Luna will only be 221,559 miles (356,565 kilometers) from our planet at 8:24 pm CST (Central Standard Time in the US), tonight. On average, the moon is about 238,000 miles (382,900 km) from Earth. That’s why we call it a “Supermoon”. On January 31, 2018 we will have a Full Blue Moon, which will also be a “Supermoon”.
