Add to that a total lunar eclipse that will be visible in some parts of the world, and you have a rare conjunction of events-something like a "super blue blood moon" in less than poetic terms.

If you've got a good imagination, the best view would be from the moon, he says. Though not inherently noticeable, a supermoon can appear slightly larger in the sky than its ordinary counterpart. Unlike solar eclipses, a lunar eclipse is not risky to watch and the eclipse may last for hours and be seen in many parts of the world.

"The whole character of the moon changes when we observe with a thermal camera during an eclipse", said Paul Hayne of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado Boulder. The closest approach the Moon will make to the planet occurs on the night of January 30, according to Space.com, which would be a peak Supermoon if it was a full moon at that time. This occurs only when the sun, earth, and moon are aligned.

"They don't need binoculars or telescopes you'll see this red moon in the sky, binoculars or telescope will just make the moon look closer, a little bit bigger", he said.

"So for viewers in NY or Washington, D.C., the Moon will enter the outer part of Earth's shadow at 5:51 a.m.", the NASA post adds. When the moon is full during an eclipse, there is a total lunar eclipse. The best lunar eclipse viewing for the US will be in Alaska, Hawaii and the west coast. It seems another Super Blue Blood Moon will occur only 19 years from now: January 31, 2037, at 8:06 a.m. It's a lunar eclipse, when the moon passes through the Earth's shadow and is tinted a coppery red. "The eclipse will be harder to see in the lightening pre-dawn sky, and the Moon will set after 7:00 a.m.as the Sun rises". Moon during this phase is known as super moon.

A#Total Lunar Eclipse is predicted to occur in the early hours of January 31. So, "set your alarm early and go out and take a look", Johnston said. The moon doesn't change color, so please don't write letters to the editor venting your disappointment. Because of the timing of the full moons, February will not have one and March will have two.
