First blue supermoon lunar eclipse in 150 years coming in January 31

Supermoon wows New Mexicans another set for January 31 Supermoons, meteor shower to light up the sky this January

But it will be 31 January that will be the most dramatic and unusual of all, and the one that Nasa is advising people to make sure they catch.

Total lunar eclipse On the night of January 31, Filipinos will enjoy two rare occurrences - a blue moon and a total lunar eclipse.

A super blood moon sits above the Saint-Michel church in Bordeaux, France, September 28, 2015.

A timetable has been set for the major stages of the blue moon event in accordance with six different time zones.

The peak of the shower was January 3, a waning full moon may interfere with observing these meteors, NASA stated. So, during totality, the moon's lower limb will appear much brighter than the dark upper limb. Following the Supermoon that rose on January 1 called the Wolf Moon, another celestial event will happen before the end of this month as the moon does something it has never done in more than 150 years. While the saying "once in a blue moon" suggests rarity, these events are more common than you might think. Together, they've not happened for 150 years. Supermoons occur when we get a full moon near or at the point when the moon's orbit is closest to Earth, also called the perigee of its orbit (the technical term for the event is really perigee-syzygy). During this event, certain wavelengths of light from the sun pass through the Earth's atmosphere and reflect onto the moon, turning it a dramatic red colour.

This will be the "biggest full moon of 2018".

Nearby perigee full moons appear about 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than full moons that occur near apogee in the moon's orbit, NASA reported. America's West Coast will get the best look at the blood moon as the eclipse begins at 2:51 a.m. and will last through 6 a.m.

The first eclipse of 2018 will be a lunar one that comes at the very end of the month, on January 31.

Third - and probably most notable of all - the same night will see a lunar eclipse. The Earth will sit directly between the sun and the moon, obscuring light which normally reflects brightly. The reddish color of the eclipsed moon earned it the name Blood Moon.

For the rest of the US, the eclipse will come too close to when the moon sets for the phenomenon to be visible. The first one is for Hawaii (HST), another for Alaska (AKST) along with four others in the U.S.as well as Canada.

"The moon will turn red or coppery during the total eclipse". To answer that question, we consulted the reference book Canon of Lunar Eclipses, 1500 B.C. - A.D.
