Happy New Year

This first month of 2018 will feature TWO Supermoons--  one on 1/2 and the other on 1/31!  A supermoon occurs when the moon is at its closest approach to the Earth, making it appear slightly larger and brighter than usual. The second supermoon on 1/31 (and last for 2018), Blue Moon will also be a Blue Moon-- so called due to the rarity of 2 full moons in one calendar month.

Let's hope that this exceptional celestial beginning bodes well for an auspicious 2018!
