Locals were treated to a luminous delight when they looked up Monday night.

A supermoon, which NASA dubbed the Wolf Moon, rose as New Year’s Day ended. Even though there will be three supermoons this year, Monday’s moon will be the brightest and biggest of 2018, according to NASA.

Tonight’s full Moon will be the biggest and brightest of 2018. Called the Wolf Moon, we’re calling it our #NewYearsDay Moon and the most super of the three supermoons this winter. Happy #MoonCrushMonday!
