Here's A Kindy-Level Breakdown Of That 'Super Blue Blood Moon' Event

"Make sure you have a clear line of sight to the horizon in the west-northwest, opposite from where the sun will rise", Johnston said in a NASA statement.

If the weather gods co-operate, the "super blue blood moon" on January 31 is one of them.

Each lunar cycle, the moon passes through perigee - the point in its elliptical orbit closest to Earth. Institute Director Dr Anil Pandey said, "On the 31st, the moon will be on the closer orbit to the earth".

If you can only catch one episode of the supermoon trilogy, catch the third one. The next supermoon will be January 20, 2019. On this date, the satellite will have reached a full stage, so it will be the second full moon in January.

The supermoon will appear 14% larger compared to the moon's regular size and it will emit light 30% brighter than usual.

You can call this event rare.

By 10.51pm the Earth's shadow will completely cover the moon, and the total eclipse will last until 12.07am before the partial eclipse ends at 1.11am. This exceedingly dramatic name is given to the full moon during a total lunar eclipse.

There's only going to be a brief window to observe the total lunar eclipse because the moon will being setting shortly after 7 a.m.

Canada's Bombardier wins big over Boeing in trade dispute
Boeing said the 737 Max 7, which is now the company's smallest passenger jet, is roughly comparable starting with 138 seats. Airbus has said it will add an assembly line at its plant in Alabama for the C Series, potentially skirting the tariff.

Unlike the lunar eclipse, the supermoon will last for several hours and factors, such as light pollution and poor weather, minimally affect its visibility. You'll have another chance to see a total lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019, which should be visible across the U.S. This type of moon can sometimes be referred to as a blood moon, or even a snow moon as it is by some Native American tribes. For India, the three events coincide after a gap of 36 years. For it to occur, the planets had to align.

There are usually a couple of lunar eclipses each year so if you do miss it this time around, the next one will happen on July 27 - though it won't be visible in North America. For the eastern USA, the last visible one was May 31, 1844.

This moon is pretty blue and super.

"Your best opportunity if you live in the East is to head outside about 6:45 a.m. and get to a high place to watch the start of the eclipse".

In Florida and for the rest of the East Coast, stargazers only will witness a partial eclipse.

Ben Coughenour, planetarium coordinator at Wayne State University, said Detroit will not be able to see the total eclipse, as the moon will set at 7:46 a.m. and the total eclipse begins at 7:51.

The night of January 31 will be special for people in many parts of the world.

Al Hariri said the spectacular show won't be visible to just the UAE residents, but also to people in the Americas and throughout the pacific.
