First Blue Moon Total Eclipse In 150 Years Coming On Jan. 31

02 Enero 2018

The first one is named Full Wolf Moon, and the second: Super Blue Blood-Moon.

The largest supermoon of the year will be visible in the skies over Taiwan this evening (Jan. 2) and will be followed lunar eclipse at the end of the month, according to the Astronomical Observatory under the Central Weather Bureau (CWB).

There has already been a Wolf Moon this month, which occurred on New Year's Day, when the moon appeared about 14% bigger and 30% brighter in the sky as it reached its closest point to Earth during orbit. ABC7 caught some images of it as it peered through the clouds. It will be visible to Indians tonight at 9.24 p.m. EST (0224 GMT).

So when and where can the "Super Blue Blood Moon" be seen? Astronomers have to go all the way back to March 31, 1866 to find the last "Blue Blood Moon". They also called it the "biggest and brightest" for 2018.

According to the US space agency, the second supermoon will be viewable "from western North America across the pacific to Eastern Asia". On America's East Coast the eclipse will start coming into view at 5:51 a.m. and will give viewers in cities like New York only a small window to see the reddish moon.

Another supermoon will take place Jan. 31. Blue moons come around every 2.7 years, but this year's may be a once in a lifetime sight.
