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

A lunar eclipse only occurs during a full moon.

Keep in mind that during a lunar eclipse, half of the Earth still is receiving sunlight.

It's easy to make a Moon Phases Calendar and Calculator that will keep all of the dates and times for the year's phases of the Moon at your fingertips.

People in western Kentucky will just be able to see the total lunar eclipse as the moon sets on the horizon.

This is the first lunar occultation of the year and is special as it will overlap three different lunar events that include a blue moon, a super moon and a #Blood Moon. When the eclipse of Jan 31 is nearly over, the moon had just crossed the perigee position a day earlier with a distance of 358,993 kilometres from the Earth, making this eclipse as "Supermoon Eclipse".

Early Wednesday morning, January 31, will bring a rare treat for skygazers in many parts of the world: It's a full moon on the night of January 31, and the second one in one calendar month, so it becomes a blue moon by our modern definition. 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.

Set your alarms, space fans - if you can drag yourself out of bed next Wednesday, you're in for a treat.

Eager stargazers living in North America, Alaska or Hawaii will be able to see the eclipse before sunrise on Wednesday, according to NASA.

The horrifying bus attack left the young passengers mortified as protesters threw stones at the vehicle. Just a while ago, they had seen a Haryana Roadways bus lying charred by the side of the road.

While the Earth revolves around the sun, the moon revolves around the Earth.

This effectively means that the moon will look about 14 percent brighter than it does when the full moon is at its farthest point from the Earth. Pacific Time, although the shadow will start appearing on the moon at approximately 3:48 a.m.

Finally, at 6:08 a.m., the total eclipse will end, with the moon slipping back into a partial eclipse.

Before people knew the reason for this, people feared a blood moon, seeing it as an act of God.

Mr Johnston said: "For the (continental) United States, the viewing will be best in the West".

Total eclipse begins at 4:52 a.m.

Supermoons will occur when the moon is less than 360,000 kilometres away from the Earth and no specific equipment is required to see this phenomenon.

Global map showing areas of the world that will experience (weather permitting) the January 31, 2018 "super blue blood moon". The next solar eclipse will be a partial eclipse on October 14, 2023. The earlier you're out, the better the view. It will be visible before sunrise on 31 January from western North America, and because of the worldwide date line, after sunset on 31 January from central and eastern Asia, Indonesia, New Zealand and most of Australia.
