The big event is coming on January 31, when another supermoon is set to light up the sky - making it, as some have pointed out, a "blue supermoon".
As the moon visible on January 31 will technically be the second supermoon of the month, it is therefore considered a Blue Moon, but it will be at least partially obscured during the eclipse process for a total of 5 hours and 20 minutes.
In addition, the so-called "full supermoon" appeared 30 percent brighter than an average full moon, according to NASA.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Filipinos are in for several spectacles of the evening sky with the occurrence of a total lunar eclipse on January 31, which will be visible throughout the country.
The moon is expected to reach its fullest point tonight, Monday, January 1, 2018, at 8:24 pm Cullman time.For Eastern time (EST) in the United States, residents in that region will see the eclipse begin at 6:48 AM and the moon will dip out of view shortly thereafter.
Perigee is an astronomical term that identifies the nearest distance of the moon to the earth.
'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.

Another Supermoon is on the calendar for January 31, 2018.
The moon was visible from Earth with the naked eye, just as it always is.
The first and last supermoon of 2017 didn't happen until December, but in 2018 the wait won't last past New Year's Day.
"As long as it's clear out, you'll have no trouble seeing the moon at all", she said.
PAGASA, however, said the moon appearing with a tinge of blue, may occur in certain atmospheric conditions like during volcanic eruptions or when exceptionally large fires leave particles in the atmosphere.
