Add it all up and you've got a Super Blue Moon!

One year earlier, an American psychiatrist wrote a book entitled How The Moon Affects You, warning that lunar cycles could cause huge earthquakes (including a 1982 prediction for California that did not come true) and affect the human body. The forecast for January 31st as of the date of this story is cloudy with flurries, although that may change.

Supermoons will occur when the moon is less than 360,000 kilometers away from the Earth and no specific equipment is required to see this phenomenon. Although that one will be a supermoon, it won't be a blue moon.

These events all take place thanks to quirks in the moon's orbit. That means one month sometimes has to get two of them, and this year it's January.

Pierce explains that being closer to earth makes the moon appear about 15 percent larger. "The difference in size is very hard for our eyes to discern, but the moon will probably be noticeably bright". You'll see Earth's shadow progressing over the moon for a period of time. States such as Montana, Wyoming, Utah, and Arizona are far enough west that the moon is above the horizon for totality.

What is a blue moon?

There are two different definitions of blue moon. It's also the second full moon of the month, commonly known as a "blue moon".

But if you remove the blue moon element, which is just an effect of how we've structured our calendar, "Super Blood Moons" aren't all that rare. This year, however, we'll be spoiled.

Images of the first rare supermoon of 2018 Tue, January 2, 2018 The first full moon of the year named after wolves is the second of a series of three "Supermoons" - dubbed the "Supermoon trilogy". A lunar eclipse is when the earth passes between the sun and moon. With the sun's light no longer directly reflecting from the moon's surface, scattered sunlight from the Earth falls on the moon, transforming it from white to blood-red in appearance.

This lunar eclipse is visible before sunrise in North America, Alaska and Hawaii.

If you're hoping to catch the eclipse, here's how you can see it.

A supermoon in eclipse is pictured behind Glastonbury Tor in Glastonbury, U.K., September 27, 2015. It won't be as impressive of a view as it would be if it happened at night but you could see a little bit of a reddish hue to the partially cut full moon as it sets in the western sky. Both NASA and the Virtual Telescope Project will stream the eclipse live. Totality will be during the 5 a.m. hour. He lives in Ottawa so he will see the moon moving into the shadow just as the moon sets.

Dr. Michael Pierce, University of Wyoming associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, said the "super" designation is a result of the elliptical shape of the moon's orbit.
