On January 31st, there will be a total lunar eclipse.

The supermoon will follow one that occurred December 3. When added to the glow of a full moon, the difference is hardly perceptible to the human eye.

It will appear slightly bigger than a normal full moon, and it might appear to be significantly brighter than a full moon.

PAGASA, however, said the moon appearing with a tinge of blue, may occur in certain atmospheric conditions like during volcanic eruptions or when exceptionally large fires leave particles in the atmosphere.

As the moon orbits the Earth every month, there is a point in every cycle where the moon is closest (perigee) and a point where it's farthest away (apogee).
