A super blue blood moon set to appear Wednesday

Moon to stage triple show tomorrow

Unlike a total solar eclipse, a total lunar eclipse will not damage your eyes. Derrick Pitts, chief astronomer at Philadelphia's Franklin Institute, says it's the first time in more than 150 years that this triple effect will come together.

For those who missed the full moon treat on January 1, a rare celestial treat awaits you on January 31, marking the last in a trilogy of supermoons. Typically, a supermoon will appear about 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than an average full moon.

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.

Rochester's skies may offer a better view of the moon, since their forecast shows scattered clouds.

Space observers and photo enthusiasts are equally excited about the event. In fact, this instance of having two full moons in one month happens about every 2.7 years.

"If you were heading south to see the super blood moon you'd need to drive all the way to Washington, D.C. or the Carolinas", Montgomery said as he reviewed the computer models this weekend.

It occurs when Earth blocks sunlight making Moon completely dark. Such a moon is known as blood moon. This can occur only when the sun, earth, and moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the earth in the middle. However, the UAE residents will have only three to four minutes to see the total super moon eclipse.

The eclipse begins at 6:48 a.m., when the earth's shadow will start to cast. The eclipse will end at 9.38 PM.

"Your best opportunity if you live in the East is to head outside about 6:45 a.m. and get to a high place to watch the start of the eclipse". Such a celestial event last took place in 1866. Such phenomenon happens when the Earth comes in between Sun and the Moon. In addition, that full moon happens to be at one of its closest points to Earth for the entire year. And we're just squeezing in this second full moon on January 31.

For viewers in the Mountain State, we'll only see a partial lunar eclipse, which will be visible before sunrise on January 31, weather permitting. Although it does not have a scientific definition, a "blood moon" occurs during a lunar eclipse when faint red sunbeams peek out around the edges of the moon, giving it a reddish, copper color.

However, those who are disappointed should be over the moon on January 20, 2019, when Daytona will be in a prime position to see a super blood moon.
