  • 'Super blue blood moon' coming Jan. 31

Because that light is streaming along the Earth's edge at a very shallow angle, the greens and blues are scattered away, leaving only reds and oranges to spill into the shadow cone. NASA is calling it a since it's a combination of three distinct events.

Dubbed a "lunar trifecta" by NASA, the super blue blood moon is set to grace the sky on the night of January 31 into February 1.

To see this happening, step outside at around 5:30 Eastern Time on the 31st of January, 2018.

The supermoon competes with seasonal lights in Wells, England, on January 1. By his definition, a supermoon is a full or new moon that comes within 224,000 miles of the earth. The orbit of the moon around the earth is slightly tilted vis-a-vis earth-sun orbit, hence this phenomenon is rare.

"It is estimated that that the moon will be 34% brighter and 14% bigger than its usual size and light", he maintained. "The difference in size is very hard for our eyes to discern, but the moon will probably be noticeably bright".

The black sheep of the moon family, a black moon may not be that much to look at, since it's the second new moon within a month - and since we can't see new moons, well we'll just have to appreciate that it's there. But a couple times a year, the moon crosses the flat plane of Earth's orbit at the same time it's full.

The best viewing will be on the West Coast, Hawaii and Alaska.

So what's a blue moon in the first place? March will also have two full moons. Because it is the second full moon of the month, it's called a "blue moon". As Donald W. Olson, Richard Tresch Fienberg, and Roger Sinnott write for Sky and Telescope, the blue moon disagreement can be traced back to 1946, when James Hugh Pruett wrote an article for Sky and Telescope called "Once in a Blue Moon". Mathematically, there are about 29.5 days between full moons, so a blue moon only occurs once every 2.7 years, according to astronomy and mathematics. This year, however, we'll be spoiled. Pramod Galgali, Director, Nehru Planetarium, said, "The total lunar eclipse of January 31, 2018, will occur around moonrise in the evening". Representative imageWhat is a "super blue blood moon"? Then, sun, Earth and moon lie exactly in a line, the moon moves into the shadow, and we see an eclipse.

Louisiana jobs rise 9800 in December from year-ago tally
Most of the decrease occurred in food services (-1,900), due to a combination of seasonal factors and recent restaurant closures. Trade, transportation and warehousing dropped by 300 jobs, and the retail portion was unchanged over the month.

A supermoon occurs when the moon is full and its orbit is closest to the Earth.

"You're basically seeing all the world's sunrises and sunsets at that moment reflected off the surface of the Moon, so it should be quite spectacular". Blue moons occur every two-and-a-half years.

Lunar eclipses happen about twice a year. "For this eclipse, much of the US will be racing against sunrise".

Not everyone will be able to see the moon, and those locations that can will have to wake up early for it.

If you're hoping to catch the eclipse, here's how you can see it.

A supermoon in eclipse is pictured behind Glastonbury Tor in Glastonbury, U.K., September 27, 2015. Viewers from eastern Asia, the Pacific, and western North America will get the best view, but viewers in eastern North America and Europe will also catch a partial eclipse.

In Florida and for the rest of the East Coast, stargazers only will witness a partial eclipse. During a blue moon, the moon is rarely blue - it's normally just its regular color.
