Today, a series of three supermoons in a row – supermoon trifecta – is starting, with fullmoons on December 3, 2017, January 1, 2018, and January 31, 2018. The supermoon on January 1 will be the largest of the year. The most special of the three will light up the sky on January 31 as it features a total lunar eclipse. This second Full Moon of the year… and of the month of January – therefore a Blue Moon – will gradually get darker, and take on a rusty or blood red color during the eclipse.
