According to NASA, January's first full moon - nicknamed a wolf moon - will take place on January 1 and it will be a supermoon.

Mother Nature is preparing to offer a nice little treat to the hungover people of the world on the first day of 2018.

The Blazers will debut their "City" uniforms on the court on January 31 against the Chicago Bulls at the Moda Center. On the shorts, the state of OH sits in the center of the waistband and the OH flag is underneath a bottom flap.

And in this case, it's also a supermoon, the name given to a full moon that arrives when the moon happens to be at or near the part of its orbit closest to Earth.

Native Americans knew the full moon of January as the Wolf Moon, a time when wolves roamed the edges of the village in search of whatever food they might find. Since the Moon's orbital path is oval, one side is approximately 50,000 km far from the Earth. As an example, Space.com explained that in Melbourne, Australia, the first full moon comes on January 2 at 1:24 p.m. local time. Really, this is the astrological event that is a true must-see in January. The best time to check out a full moon is when it's low on the horizon, during moonrise or moonset. The final installment of the supermoon series will kick off on January 31, which will be "extra special", NASA says. As the Earth aligns perfectly between the sun and the moon, our planet's shadow blocks the sun's light.

But that super blue moon will also feature a total lunar eclipse, according to NASA.

"Blue Moons happen every two and a half years, on average", the space agency's website reads.

So the moon won't be as bright, but it will "take on an eerie, fainter-than-normal glow", NASA says, and could take on a "reddish hue". Totally eclipsed moons are sometimes referred to as a "blood moon", which is why the end of the month supermoon earned the special designation of "super blue blood moon".

Viewers on the eastern side of the United States will be able to view a partial lunar eclipse during moonset on the morning of February 1. "Will have to get up in the morning to see it, but it's another great chance to watch the Moon".
