If you are one of the stargazers, then you can see it online even if you are not at the right location.

NASA, however, is calling this first full moon of 2018 a "wolf moon". If that's too science-y, just look up in the sky and find the moon.

New Year celebrations will begin with a touch of caution in Goa, with tourism authorities in the coastal state warning of unusual tidal activity and possible flooding of beaches on Monday due to the supermoon phenomenon on January 2.

A lunar eclipse - when the moon passes through the earth's shadow - will also take place on January 31.

If you can't get out to take in the view with your own eyes, the Internet can bring it to you. However, there is a good new. "Normally, we are used to seeing the full moon rising above the eastern horizon, but this time it will be best to watch it setting over the western horizon early in the morning", he explained.

Full moons on January 1 and 31 will be followed by full moons on March 1 and March 31. They typically occur around every 13 months, according to NASA.

The moon will technically be considered 100 percent full a 9:24 p.m.

PEEP OUT YOUR window and you might be able to spot a supermoon.

On this first day of 2018, at 5 p.m. EST (2200 GMT), the January full moon will arrive at perigee, its closest point to Earth in an orbit. The moon will be blocked out by the earth's shadow. The next full moon will come on 7 February at 4.54pm so it's not quite as much of a late night.

The longtime Slooh astronomers Paul Cox and Helen Avery will help the audience to walk through the spectacle of nature. A third supermoon will happen January 31. Check out The Virtual Telescope Project or Slooh.com, which livestreams supermoons.
