A once in a blue moon spectacle

Blue moons take place around twice in two and a half years.

Dr Vijay Bhaskar, director of Centre of Space Medicine, has meanwhile asked citizens not to encourage superstitions associated with the lunar eclipse. East coast residents may still be able to see the blood moon, but it will not be as impressive due to the lack of darkness at the time of the event. For a lunar eclipse, it's the same idea: you still have shadows, but in this case, it's the Earth blocking off the sunlight for the moon.

A blood moon is a pretty sight to beholdWhat is a super blue blood moon?

The super blood moon will be visible on January 31st, 2018. Full moons are typically.

The term blood moon isn't a scientific term but one coined colloquially.

This moon is pretty blue and super. Because it is the second full moon of the month, it is known as the 'blue moon, ' Piotrowski said.

It will occur at around 1.30pm United Kingdom time, which means we won't see it from the UK.

The maximal eclipse in Dubai will be visible at 6.04pm and the total eclipse will end at 6.07pm. Slooh spokespeople will narrate the progress of our satellite beginning 7 a.m. EST (1200 GMT), offering lunar science and mythology.

Rawat is new CEC, Lavasa election commissioner
A former joint secretary in the Ministry of Defence, Rawat was appointed Election Commissioner in August 2015. Reports claimed that former finance commissioner Ashok Lavasa has been appointed new election commissioner.

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. This will be the first time in 150 years that a blue moon also coincides with a total lunar eclipse. Although it does not have a scientific definition, a "blood moon" occurs during a lunar eclipse when faint red sunbeams peek out around the edges of the moon, giving it a reddish, copper color.

What is a super moon?

But what will really make the January 31 moon spectacular for some viewers is the fact that it will be happening during a total lunar eclipse. This is where the phrase "Once in a blue moon" comes from.

Unlike a total solar eclipse, a total lunar eclipse will not damage your eyes. That entirely depends on where you live.

By that time, however, the moon will already have set in the eastern time zone.
