The first of two January 2018 full moons falls on the evening of January 1, 2018, for most of the Western Hemisphere. This full moon comes only 4.5 hours after the moon reaches lunar perigee, the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit. Thus this full moon presents the closest, and thereby the largest and brightest, supermoon of 2018.
