Romantics around the world … unite! The rare phenomenon will take place TODAY and the scientists call it Super Blue Blood Moon. All you have to do is look at the sky, to indulge the magic and realize how “small” we are in the universe.
The Eclipse happens once every 150 years and mainly the inhabitants of the Northern Hemisphere will have a chance to enjoy. This is a unique context for scientific data.
If someone takes a glance at the evening sky, possibly you have noticed that the moon appears much larger. This is because the natural satellite of Earth moves closer to the nearest point of the last 150 years. Therefore, seems by 14% bigger and 30% brighter.
31 January we will have the largest and brightest full moon that we have and will ever see in our lives.The last time the same phenomenon happened, was on 31st March 1866!
The phenomenon started with the full moon on 3rd of December. Continued with the full moon on 1st of January and culminates, in the largest possible phase, on 31st January. The Blood Moon is also “bluish” because it is the second in the same month.
The culmination of the phenomenon will take place for a couple of hours, which will be different for each country, because of the time difference and the geographical width and length.
The Moon will pass through different phases.
The Super Blue Blood Moon will be visible in East Asia, in regions in Atlantic, West and East Coast of North America. In Europ will be visible, but not as strongly as in earlier.
NASA is interested in the coverage and study such phenomena and will cover it live via the Internet.
Happy New Year’s Eve! A lunar event will greet us all in the New Year. Tomorrow, January 1, the full Moon will be at or near its closest point in its orbit around Earth, making it a supermoon. Sometimes, it’s hard for our eyes to distinguish these small changes in size when the Moon is high amidst the vastness of the night sky. But any time you catch a full Moon as it rises or sets, while it’s suspended low on the horizon beaming through the silhouettes of trees or buildings, its apparent size might make you do a double-take.
You almost feel as though you could reach out, grab the glowing orb, and drop it into your coffee cup. Even more so if it’s a supermoon. Bundle up, get outside and look up! #HappyNewYear This picture was taken during the Dec. 3, 2017 supermoon. An aircraft taking off from Ronald Reagan National Airport was seen passing in front of the Moon as it rose. The Jan. 1 full Moon is the second of three consecutive supermoons. The first occurred on Dec. 3 and the third will happen on Jan. 31, 2018.

“Those who will not be able to see it, can’t wait other 150 years to have a second chance.”
