Blue moon eclipse coming this week

Blue moon eclipse coming this week
The interest in the rare occurrence is heightened since it is going to be seen after 36 years which combines three astronomical events consisting of total lunar eclipse, the supermoon and the blue moon.
For the first time in the Americas in more than 150 years, a blue moon, supermoon and lunar eclipse will fall on the same night!
And third in this trio of events is the "blood moon". 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. The Super Blue Blood Moon is on the way.
In the United States, the best viewing (total lunar eclipse) will be in the Western states.
- A total lunar eclipse, which is often referred to as a "Blood Moon" due to the reddish color the moon takes when it passes through Earth's shadow.
UNO's Mallory Kountze Planetarium does not have any public events planned for the lunar events, she said, mainly because special equipment is not required, it is a morning event, and winter mornings can be extremely cold. The eclipse begins at 4:51 a.m., just as the Moon is starting to set in the West.
The super moon will rise as the sun sets, but moon gazers will have to wait hours longer to see the full event.
"The lunar eclipse on January 31 will be visible during moonset". We will have clear skies, so you should be able to view it easily.
A supermoon is a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in its' elliptical orbit. The moon will still be fully visible, but because the Earth will be between the moon and the sun the moon should take on a deep orange hue.
The total eclipse could be observed after 6.22 p.m with the moon completely entering into the umbra - the dark shadow of the Earth. NASA Television and the agency's website will provide live coverage of the celestial spectacle beginning at 5:30 a.m. EST.
Partial eclipse begins at 3:48 a.m. While viewers along the East Coast will see only the initial stages of the eclipse before moonset, those on British Columbia's west coast will see most or all of the lunar eclipse phases before dawn.
