(WBAY) - The new year kicks off with a Supermoon.
StormCenter 2 Chief Meteorologist Steve Beylon says the Supermoon will peak Monday (Jan. 1) at 8:24 p.m.
So what it is a Supermoon? It's a full moon at or near the closest point in the moon's orbit around earth, according to NASA.
NASA says a Supermoon appears about 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than other full moons.
The Supermoon is the first of two full moons in January. We'll have a blue moon at the end of the month.
