Something unbelievable will happen with the moon on January 31

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

Our first full moon this month was on January 1, and this second full moon on Wednesday, January 31 qualifies as a "blue moon".

The super blood moon will be visible on January 31st, 2018. Therefore, the Moon can easily pass above or below the Earth's shadow or the visual disk of the Sun, which is also about 30 arcminutes across. "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". The well-known idiom actually refers to the rare instance when there is a second full moon in a calendar month.

He said the color is caused by the Earth's atmosphere reflecting red light from the sun onto the moon and becoming visible during the eclipse, ironically turning the blue moon red.

The rapid change in temperature that will occur on the moon when it slips into and out of Earth's shadow Wednesday will allow Elphic's team to leverage heat-sensing equipment to gain a better understanding of the moon's surface. Early Wednesday morning, the moon will charge right into the umbra shadow and get bloody!

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

With the moon setting, make sure you have a non-obstructed view of the western sky. It occurs when the moon is full while at or near its closest point to the Earth in its elliptical orbit.

Readings like these help scientists understand which areas of the moon are scientifically significant.




Unlike a solar eclipse, this lunar eclipse can be safely viewed without protective eyewear. In my opinion, the hype is the result of the large appearance any full moon has when it's close to the horizon around rising and setting times.

He explained that, because of the dust and atmospheric conditions, the moon may appear slightly blue.

A rare lunar occurrence is set to be enjoyed by most of the world as eyes will turn to the skies when our moon becomes a Super Blue Blood Moon - for the first time in 150 years.

"If you live on the beach in Pacifica, you're great to go".

The challenge for central OH viewers will be two-fold: increasing high clouds during the pre-dawn hours on Wednesday, and the narrow window to view the partial lunar eclipse, locally.

The Virtual Telescope Project will also live stream the eclipse with source material in Australia and the USA beginning 6:30 a.m. EST (1130 GMT) until 11 a.m. EST (1600 GMT). Many parts of Asia witnessed that event as it happened on December 30.
