How to watch the 'blue moon' lunar eclipse

Украинцы станут свидетелями кровавого лунного затмения

A rare confluence of a blue moon, a supermoon, a blood moon and a total lunar eclipse will be visible in the sky over parts of the U.S. and Canada on January 31 - the first time a "super blue blood moon" has happened since March 31, 1866. Moreover, it is going to be the first blue moon eclipse in 2018, and this is why many are calling it as "Super Blue Blood Moon". Representative imageWhat is a "super blue blood moon"?

Pierce explains that being closer to earth makes the moon appear about 15 percent larger. The second type is Monthly Blue Moon, known as the second Full Moon in a Georgian month as opposed to the usual one Full Moon.

A blood moon occurs when the Earth is directly between the Sun and the Moon.

Equally important was a par save on No. 6, where his flop-shot wedge from deep rough stopped four feet from the cup. The importance was not lost on Woods, who has missed just 17 cuts worldwide - 16 on the PGA Tour - in his career.

Todd Bush took this photograph of the last Supermoon on December 4, 2017 that was setting directly over Beech Mountain's 5506' summit A Supermoon occurs when the moon is closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit during full or new moon. The day will be marked by a "super blood blue moon" event. Think of it as moon "wobble" that results in the moon getting even closer and giving us a really big super moon.

Chances are you have used the phrase "once in a blue moon" - but have you ever wondered where it came from?

Imposing, handsome and unique in concept, the 30-storey aluminium and glass building which houses Yayasan Sabah Group Headquarters, the Menara Tun Mustapha in Likas, will be one of the locations in the country to observe the total lunar eclipse on 31 January. "If last month's Full Moon were a 16.0 inch pizza, then this month's "Super" moon would be 16.1 inches". The turnouts provide a decent W/NW horizon and elevation for a good view of the setting/eclipsed Moon.

Ontario Conservative MP Patrick Brown accused of sexual misconduct
Brown was re-elected in the federal riding of Barrie twice more, but remained a backbencher in Harper's Conservative government. Jones and Clark said the PC caucus would "immediately consult with party officials and members on best way to move forward".

"Again, you'll have more success if you can go to a high place with a clear view to the west", he said. The next time we will see two blue moons in a calendar year (in January and March) will be in 2037. Mark your calendars for January 20, 2019: a total lunar eclipse will start in the evening and run into the early morning hours. During that time, the moon will appear in the sky with a reddish tint to it, which is commonly referred to as a blood moon. The moon will exit the umbra by 8.40 pm and the eclipse will end by 9.40 pm.

All right, so we have our blue moon. The red and orange wavelengths are bent toward the moon while other colours scatter away from the moon. The event will begin at 5:30 Eastern Time on January 31st, and if that's a deterrent for you, turn back now! It's rare to have two full moons in one month.

This is the first time in more than 150 years that the trifecta of events will coincide, so it's certainly a worthy cause for waking up early to admire it. Unlike the solar eclipse, lunar eclipses do not affect the eyes and can therefore be seen with naked eyes. The moon will not actually appear purple, nor will have it a cape-but January 31 is a great time to gaze up and enjoy the night sky.
