Super blood blue moon to appear in sky on Jan 31

Wednesday is the second blue moon of January and it also happens to be a Super moon and a blood moon.

There will also be a blue moon, which occurs when you have two full moons in one month.

"It is estimated that the moon will be 34% brighter and 14% bigger than its usual size and light", he maintained.

The best time to view the moon with a reddish tint in the NY to D.C. area is around 6:48 a.m. Wednesday, according to NASA.

The best weather for moon spotting will be in the south and central parts of the country.

A "blood" moon is so aptly named because of the color the moon turns during a total lunar eclipse (when the Earth is between the sun and moon and casts its shadow on the Moon). However, in the Rogue Valley, there will be the chance for areas of fog to develop that could obscure or limit the view of the Super Blue Blood Moon.

The Illinois Valley will not see the entirety of the total eclipse, but as the moon sets Wednesday, some effects from the eclipse are expected to be noticeable.

From late on Wednesday night, when the moon is full, it will slide entirely into the earth's shadow.

According to the meteorological department, lunar eclipse in Pakistan will start at 3:51pm.

"Folks in the eastern United States, where the eclipse will be partial, will have to get up in the morning to see it", said Noah Petro, a research scientist from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

A blue moon is the third full moon in a four full-moon astronomical season. The last time in 1866 and the next will be January 31, 2037. The eclipse will start at 6:48am EST, with moonset in Montreal occurring at 7:17am.

Glover said blue moons occur once every two to three years and happens when there are two full moons in the same calendar month.

Information from Paulson suggests that the full eclipse will end at 7:07 a.m., with the moon back to its regular non-apocalyptic self at 9:08 a.m.

As the moon will completely enter the earth's umbral shadow, it may look reddish, according to the Positional Astronomy Centre, India Meteorological Department. Thus, there will be five lunar eclipses through the year, with the longest one in the past 100 years occurring on July 27.
