23 January, 2018, 02:12 | Author: Patty Aguilar
Sky watchers are in for a special treat at the end of January when a lunar trifecta fills the night skies: a pre-dawn "super blue blood moon".
While news outlets have been circulating the news that this will be the first such event in 150 years - this is true only for America, not for those in the rest of the world. "As for the super moon, it will be called so because the moon will appear bigger than usual as the full moon and eclipse will be near its perigee, the closest point to earth in its elliptic orbit", explained MP Birla Planetarium director (research & academic) Debiprosad Duari. AKA a "supermoon." Put all of that together and we get the "super blue blood moon!". Some areas have better visibility than others.
Those on the West Coast of the United States, as well as residents of Alaska and Hawaii, will have a great view of the event from start to finish. "The eclipse begins at 5:51 AM ET, as the Moon is about to set in the western sky, and the sky is getting lighter in the east". Find a spot where there is a clear view of the horizon. "The moon crosses through our Earth's shadow, causing our moon's illuminated surface to act as a lens, and giving the once bland greyscale surface to glow a soft peachy red". However, individuals in the east won't have the show people on the West Coast will have. The red coloring is why the moon also gets the nickname of the "blood moon". However, those in Asia and Australia will get the best view of the rare natural phenomenon, which last happened on December 30, 1982. By 6:30 a.m., the moon will set and the sun will begin to rise.
