Witness The Rare Super Blue Blood Moon on Jan 31

If you are residing in the United States, you can view the big, red moon like a fully grown rose in the early morning blue sky. The blue moon will pass the earth's shadow on January 31 to give a lunar eclipse. The lunar eclipse component of these three aligned events is fascinating for astronomers since the rapid temperature changes that occur when the Earth blocks the direct light of the sun can reveal new aspects of the moon's surface. Or, more specifically, once in a super blue blood moon. Midway through Wednesday's eclipse, the moon will be even farther away - 223,820 miles - but still within unofficial supermoon guidelines. Such an event is known as the blue moon.

Blue refers to the second full moon in a calendar month. The first full moon occurred on January 1, and the second gets in just under the wire on the morning of January 31. The actual eclipse doesn't begin until 5:48 a.m. on Wednesday.

The second reason the moon being a bit unusual has to do with the fact that it's the second full moon of the month. For the first time in a 150 years in North America - a supermoon, a blue moon, and a blood moon will align.

Those from Albay may see a redder moon on January 31, with dust particles adding to the color. Keep in mind the moon will be lowering on the western horizon, which means it could be hard viewing for some, especially those of you who have a forest or line of trees on the west side of your home or residence.

Tonight's super moon is when it appears slightly larger and brighter. "Unfortunately, eclipse viewing will be more challenging in the eastern time zone". Johnston said that people living in Kansas City or Chicago, then their best viewing time will be about 6:15 AM to 6:30 AM and people can go to a high place to get a clear view to the West.

NASA plans to provide a live stream of the moon from telescopes in California and Arizona, beginning at 4:30 a.m.
