January 2018 brings two supermoons

Gracie Warda, Online Editor

The new year can bring many events, among which are two supermoons in the first month. A supermoon occurs when a full moon and the moon’s perigee (or point in its orbit where it is closest to Earth) fall on the same day. This lunar occurrence causes the Moon to appear to be 14 percent larger and 30 percent larger, according to Space.com. Click below to learn more about these two supermoons.
