LOOKING AHEAD: "Super, Blood, Blue, Lunar Eclipse" later this month

The First Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse In 152 Years Will Occur Over Australia This Month

THE celestial heavens are set to align on January 31.

'It's a once in lifetime event, few of us will never see it again I should think, it's truly spectacular and worth staying up for, ' Mr Boyd said. You may not even notice this at first, but after about 4:30 a.m., you'll see some distinct shading on the eastern part of the Moon. December 3 was the first in a series of three supermoons, and was the only one of 2017.

It appeared 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than the supermoon on July 27 past year, with pictures of it posted on social media by people around the world.

But we're not just talking about a supermoon here. In this case, the supermoon also happens to be the day of the lunar eclipse. According to NASA, "the Moon will lose its brightness and take on an eerie, fainter-than-normal glow from the scant sunlight that makes its way through Earth's atmosphere". The moon will reach a point in its orbit where the Earth will completely obstruct the Sun from its view causing all hues of blue to disappear, leaving the moon a copper-red colour!

And January's blue moon will be followed by another blue moon in late March.

The second full moon and the total lunar eclipse are happening on January 31.

In fact, you can call it a super blue blood moon.

When the Moon appears red or is eclipsed, it is also referred to as a "blood Moon", so we will essentially see a super-blue-blood Moon at the end of the month - a phenomenon that hasn't happened since 1866! If you're eager to see another eclipse, you're in luck. In North America, Hawaii and Alaska will get the best views.

The second celestial event on January 31 will be a "blue Moon", the term is used when two full Moons occur in a single calendar month. "Folks in the Eastern United States, where the eclipse will be partial, will have to get up in the morning to see it", explains Noah Petro, a research scientist from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
