Super blue blood moon lunar eclipse takes place early Wednesday

But those who are not in the path of totality, or who are experiencing cloudy weather, may catch it anyway, via a live stream broadcast on NASA.gov.

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". It will occur during the moonrise, which is in the evening.

The rare lunar event, dubbed a "super blue blood moon", marks the unusual overlap of three celestial occurrences: a "blue moon," or second full moon in a calendar month; a "supermoon", in which the moon is near its closest point to Earth in its orbit; and a total lunar eclipse, when the earth casts a shadow on the moon.

The moon turns red because white light is made up of ROYGBIV (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet) but only the red and orange light makes it through the earth's atmosphere, which makes the moon red, a similar reason to why we have red sunsets, Mr Drummond said. "The next time this event will occur is in 2037, while the last was spotted in 1999", said Patna's Shrikrishna Science Centre project co-ordinator Amitabh.

While the moon will appear its normal color through most of the night, Lada stated that it will turn a rusty orange or red color during the predawn hours of January 31 as it passes into the Earth's shadow.

About two-thirds of the United States - including the East, South and Southwest - will have generally fair skies on Wednesday morning, allowing for a view of the lunar eclipse as long as the moon is in the sky.

A lunar eclipse will come to the skies early tomorrow morning (Jan. 31).

Other parts of the world, including Australia and Asia, will see it at night, as the moon comes up in the west. The western part of India, including Rajasthan will be seeing the lunar trilogy between 6:21 pm to 7:37 pm.

MetService meteorologist Tui McInnes said moon rise was predicted at 8.10pm and would set at 5.30am tomorrow.

Spectators can view various changes in the position of the Moon.

Where is the best place to see it?

. "The coppery-colour is dependant on the sunlight coming through the Earth's atmosphere".

Then there is "blood moon", a relatively new expression. The super moon appears larger because it's six-per-cent closer to the earth and 14-per-cent brighter. Almost 152 years later, the trifecta celestial event dubbed as the Super Blue Blood Moon will occur again just before sunrise January 31, 2018.

Various time frames when the lunar trilogy will occur. The last time the western hemisphere witnessed an event like this, Andrew Johnson was in the White House.
