First 'Super Blue Blood Moon' for over 150 years

First 'Super Blue Blood Moon' for over 150 years

During an eclipse, the moon will pass to the Earth's shadow which will give it a reddish tint, known as a "blood moon". Most of the parts of the world including India will get see this beauty of nature what we call super moon and total lunar eclipse.

Here's how it breaks down. "It's also the second full moon of the month, commonly known as a 'blue moon".

The actual total eclipse will occur from 8:51 p.m.to 10:08 p.m., during which the full moon will have a copper hue when it becomes completely obscured by the Earth's shadow.

The skies over Taiwan tonight (Jan. 31) will be illuminated by the extremely rare trifecta of a super, blue and red moon.

For people in Western Europe, most of Africa and Central and Southern America, we will miss out on the eclipse.

"Everyone is going to be able to see the super moon ... and everyone is going to see the blue moon, but really only the West Coast and west of that will see the blood moon", Strong said.

"About twice each year, a full moon lines up perfectly with the Earth and sun such that Earth's shadow totally blocks the sun's light, which would normally reflect off the moon". Midway through Wednesday's eclipse, the moon was even farther away - 223,820 miles (360,200 kilometers) - but still within unofficial supermoon guidelines. Half the planet will enjoy the moon turning a reddish color for just over an hour.

In Asia, the last Blue Moon and total lunar eclipse happened on December 30, 1982.

It will start from 5.18pm, while the total eclipse will start at 6.21pm and will last till 7.37pm.
