Sky gazers, don't miss the super blue moon lunar eclipse Wednesday morning


However, the moon doesn't actually appear blue.

It'll be your last chance to see a lunar eclipse until July 27th 2018, and with the incredible combination of a supermoon, lunar eclipse, and blood moon (which hasn't happened for 150 years), we suggest you tune in.

"The temperatures on the surface, and how they change, tell us a lot about how fluffy or compacted the soil is on the surface of the moon", Elphic said.

"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", Johnston said. It's also the second full moon of the month, commonly known as a "blue moon".

The entire celestial event will be webcast live by worldwide space agency, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) starting at 5:30 a.m. EST (1030 GMT).

Based on Nolle's theory, the moon would have to be 226,000 miles away from the Earth to be considered "super".

First, the moon that morning will be a "supermoon", since it's occurring near a perigee, or a time in the moon's orbit when it is closest to the Earth. This means that it will appear slightly larger and therefore slightly brighter than normal. It happens when the moon passes entirely into the Earth's shadow, becoming dark and even an eerie brownish red, or a blood moon, because of the way light passes into the Earth's atmosphere.

If there aren't any night clouds, Vancouverites have a prime viewing location.

"We are glad to help children in case they need any equipment to see the celestial event", said N. Raghunandan Kumar.

The celestial show that NASA has dubbed a "super blue blood moon" is due to embellish the predawn sky on Wednesday, a rare convergence of three lunar spectacles: a blue moon, a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse. "The eclipse begins at 5:51 AM ET, as the Moon is about to set in the western sky, and the sky is getting lighter in the east".

"There's nothing risky about it". You'll have another chance to see a total lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019, which should be visible across the U.S.

It should be a attractive sight, he says.

In the United States, the best view of the eclipse will be along the West Coast.

Eventually, the moon will be covered by Earth's shadow. You'd see people experiencing sunrise and sunset all at the same time.

It's a total lunar eclipse!

The eclipse will last nearly 3½ hours from the beginning of the partial phase at 3:48 a.m. PT until it ends at 7:12 a.m. PT, according to.

The umbral eclipse begins at 3.48am PT, with the full eclipse beginning at 4.51am. The peak of the blood moon eclipse is at about 6:30 a.m. local time, and the Moon will set shortly after 7 a.m. The partial eclipse will end at 7.11pm.
