Witness the phenomenal 'Super Blue Blood Moon' on January 31

What will you see during the total lunar eclipse

A unique celestial phenomenon, which is rare and happens once in two decades, can be viewed on January 31 when you will get to view various types of the moon- Snow, Blue, Super, Rising, Copper Moon and total Lunar Eclipse will take place. The last time such a thing occurred was 35 years back.

To our fortune, this day turns out to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience because it also happens to be a supermoon, and a blue moon. A coincidence of three moons - a lunar eclipse, a blue moon and a supermoon.

After this Blue Moon, the next one will pass through the Earth's umbra on December 31, 2028, and, after that, on January 31, 2037. "All the three seasonal full moons of the astronomical winter of 2017/18 are Super moon", he added.

Blue moon, on the other hand, is when there are two full moons within one calendar month, but it happens rarely.

The last blue moon event took place on May 21, 2016. The lunar eclipse will occur at the same time as a blue moon. It would be a collision of multiple lunar events.

The Jan. 31 full moon also happens to lie near its perigee, its closest orbital point to Earth.

Here in the eastern time zone, we'll see the start of the eclipse, it'll be partial but the moon will set before the start of the total phase the morning of January 31st. "This eclipse is unique because it is a rising eclipse and by the time the moon is visible in sky it will be totally eclipsed", said Satish. As it will enter the Earth's shadow, it will cause a lunar eclipse. The moon could also appear to be blood red or dark brown. That means the lunar eclipse will occur on a full moon night. The third phenomena are the blood moon - named after the reddish colour on the moon when a full moon aligns with the Earth and Sun. There's nothing super about it, really; it appears only about 7 percent larger than the average full moon - about the size difference between a 15-inch pizza and a 16-inch pizza - and is hardly noticeable without measuring it.
