By that logic, January 2014 promises to be the month of hope and change.
Astronomy enthusiasts will ring in the new year with not one, but two supermoons in January 2014.
According to Wikipedia, a supermoon is "the coincidence of a full moon, or a new moon with the closest approach the moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit."
More to the point, a supermoon results in a very large appearance of the moon in the sky. The moon typically looks bigger and brighter than usual.
The first Supermoon will occur tomorrow, Jan. 1, and the second closes out the month on Jan. 30, according to Red Orbit.
However, the moon itself (a new moon) will be at a new phase on both days, rising and setting behind the glare of the sun, making it difficult for skywatchers to see the events.
It's interesting to note this is the last time two supermoons will occur in a single calendar month until January 2018.
The year 2014 will have three more supermoons - one each in July, August and September — which should all be easier to see because they also will be full moons (instead of new moons), according to Red Orbit.
