'Super Blue Blood Moon' coming January 31 in rare space event

'Super Blue Blood Moon' coming January 31 in rare space event

NASA says viewing the eclipse may be challenging in the eastern time zone, with the best viewing in the western U.S. The super moon will be visible all night. It's the first time since 1866 that a blue moon total lunar eclipse has occurred.

An incredibly rare lunar event called a "super blue blood moon" will be visible across the UAE skies next week.

With the blue moon, super moon, and blood moon happening all at the same time, there is no denying that the evening of January 31 this year is a date worth anticipating. While the Moon is in the Earth's shadow it will take on a reddish tint, thus the blood moon aspect.

However, the west coast of the country will have a much better view, as they should be able to see totality from start to finish. For people in Asia, the Middle East or Oceana, the eclipse will be visible after sunset on January 31. The January 31 full moon is also the third in a series of three straight full moon supermoons - that is, super-close full moons.

Organizers Estimate Women's March Crowd At 300000
Los Angeles MayorEric Garcetti estimated the crowd in the city at 600,000, and said it was largest march in the country. Crowd estimates for the march in Washington were down from last year's gathering.

Residents living in the Central Time Zone will have the best viewing since the action begins when the Moon is higher in the western sky on January 31, according to NASA officials.

Incidentally, a very light penumbral eclipse comes before and after the dark (umbral) stage of the lunar eclipse. This only happens when the Moon, Earth and Sun are all aligned. Because of this, the color of the moon becomes a shade of red, prompting many to dub it as "blood moon". The next full moon - on March 2, 2018 - will swing north of the Earth's shadow.

In short, a lunar eclipse happens when the full moon closely coincides with one of its nodes, and a solar eclipse happens when a new moon does likewise.
