A "Super Moon" to Start the New Year

What a beautiful way to start the new year! On this cold clear night, the first night of 2018, a brilliant "super moon" shines down on our snow-covered landscape.  A super moon occurs when the full moon coincides with the moon's closest approach to Earth, and this year we are blessed with that event coinciding with the first day of the new year.  And I've heard that we're due to have another super moon twice this month, with the second one occurring on January 31, the same date a lunar eclipse will occur.  Super Moon, Blue Moon, lunar eclipse, all in one!

May this beautiful moon be an omen of good things to come in the year ahead.  Wishing all my friends a very Happy New Year.
