RED BLUE MOON: 'Lunar trifecta' won't happen again this century

Here’s A Kindy Level Breakdown Of That ‘Super Blue Blood Moon’ Event

January 31 brings a lunar trifecta: the super blue blood Moon.

First of all, the January 31 supermoon will feature a total lunar eclipse, with totality viewable from western North America across the pacific to Eastern Asia.

But the lunar eclipse will give the moon a distinct red tinge, earning the event the "super blue blood moon" moniker.

"Each one of them by itself isn't common, but putting all three of them together is rare", said Ben Burress, staff astronomer at Oakland's Chabot Space and Science Center. Those in the central and eastern portions of the country will only get to witness a partial eclipse because the moon will set before it occurs fully. 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.

So, a "supermoon" is when a full moon occurs at the same time as its perigee, the closest point of the moon's orbit with Earth.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny arrested in Moscow after Putin protest
The protests Sunday were unusual in their scope, with Navalny supporters organizing some 115 events across the country. Police also detained several employees of his Anti-Corruption Foundation as well as supporters, Navalny's team said.

Chances are you have used the phrase "once in a blue moon" - but have you ever wondered where it came from? This can make the moon appear to be 14 percent larger, and 30 percent brighter than when it is at its furthest point. As the eclipse will occur at sunset, this will cause the moon to appear reddish. The skies of Nainital will have the most clear and brilliant view of the eclipse.

Beginning at 5:45 a.m. EST (1045 GMT), the Slooh telescope will live stream the 5 hour and 17 minute eclipse.

It will happen between 6:51 and 7:12 a.m.

The second full moon in one month is called a blue moon.

Astronomy enthusiasts won't be the only moon-watchers. Not only is the atmosphere smog free but after the recent snowfall the skies have become clearer offering an uninterrupted view.

Kabul: Explosions at military university
The attack was reportedly launched at around 5 am on the Military University in PD5, Kabul city. On Wednesday, an assault on the offices of Save the Children in Jalalabad killed six people.

Unlike the lunar eclipse, the supermoon will last for several hours and factors, such as light pollution and poor weather, minimally affect its visibility.

Eventually, the moon will be covered by Earth's shadow. Scientists call this effect the Moon Illusion.

Right now, the forecast is looking good, though. Totality will be reached at 7:29 a.m., Testin said, and the moon will set about 7:36 a.m. He suggests those hoping to view the eclipse plan ahead.

To prepare you for the lunar triple whammy, here's your all-you-need-to-know guide. This week, in Five Ws and One H, we will get to know more about this phenomenon, which is occurring after a gap of 36 years in India.

However, those who are disappointed should be over the moon on January 20, 2019, when Daytona will be in a prime position to see a super blood moon.
