"Super Blue Blood Moon" Will Occur After 150 Years, Witness History Tomorrow

A rare'super blue blood moon is set to appear in the skies over Australia

There's a super blue blood moon on the rise, but if we see it, it will be on its way down.

So, when the full moon occurs for the second time in a month, it is called Blue Moon. The moon will appear 14 per cent brighter and seven per cent larger. Thankfully the weather will be clear, crisp and cold, flawless for viewing.

While Floridians will be able to catch a glimpse, Hochhalter recommended heading to the beach to get the best experience. The "blood moon" title comes because January 31 will also be a lunar eclipse with the moon taking on a reddish hue as it passes through the Earth's shadow.

Total cloud cover expected at 7 A.M. January 31, 2018.

I'm sure you've heard or said the phrase "once in a blue moon" when referring to something that doesn't happen very often.

Moon-watching parties for the one-hour-16-minute eclipse were advertised up and down the US West Coast, including at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, where the gathering kicks off at 3.45am.

A "Supermoon" is generally defined when the moon is slightly closer to the Earth in its orbit because that orbit is not a true flawless circle.

In Chicago, observers will see the penumbra touch at 4:51 a.m. CST and the umbral eclipse starts at 5:48 a.m. CST.

The climax of a lunar eclipse in Pakistan will be at 18:31 Pakistan Time (PST), Dr Rasul said and added it will be visible at the moonrise in the country. The last one happened 26 years after the Treaty of Waitangi was signed.

But a lunar eclipse, which causes a "blood moon" as it turns a reddish colour, will not take place in the UK. The moon will pass in the earth's shadow.

So, This makes it Super Blue Moon Tomorrow. Residents won't be able to see the final stages after about 6 a.m. because the moon will sink below the horizon.

NASA says that the best viewing will be from about 6:15 a.m. - 6:30 a.m. because of the partial eclipse will be underway and to avoid the pre-dawning of the sunrise and the setting of the moon. A lunar year consists of four three-moon periods in relation to the astronomical seasons.

The penumbral eclipse starts at 2:51 a.m. PST and the partial eclipse starts at 3:48 a.m.; nearly an hour later, at 4:51 a.m. PST, the total phase starts and lasts until 5:29 a.m. PST.
