Triple treat: Supermoon, blue moon and lunar eclipse coming next week

Rare 'Super Blue Blood Moon' coming on Jan. 31

Once in a very blue moon, a spectacular lunar event takes shape, leaving a stargazer with an astro-event of a lifetime.

Where to watch online as a rare blood, blue and super moon passes through the Earth's shadow. Our blue moon next week will mark the second full moon in one month, the more common definition of the term nowadays. In this case, the Moon will appear 14 percent smaller than normal and 30 percent dimmer. The moon will be officially full at 8:26 a.m. Wednesday. This total lunar eclipse is called a #Super Blue Blood Moon because three moon events are going to take place on a single night. When looking at the orbit of the moon, it has an elliptical path where at times it will be closer or further from the earth.

He said that the total lunar eclipse would be visible to Sri Lanka with the moon rising around 6.15 p.m. Prof.Jayaratne added that the eclipse begins at 4.21 p.m. Sri Lanka Standard Time and would last till 9.38 p.m. This name does come from the rusty, red color that the moon will become as the moon slides into Earth's shadow. Plus, you won't have to worry about those special eclipse glasses from a year ago.

The satellite is in full stage and the eclipse happens when the shadow of the earth completely blocks the light from the sun. The super moon occurrence will cause the moon to be 10 to 13 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter.

The eclipse begins at 5:51 a.m., as the moon is about to set in the western sky and the sky is getting lighter in the east.

The moon will be 23 degrees above the horizon just north of due west (274 degrees). Those in the central and eastern portions of the country will only get to witness a partial eclipse because the moon will set before it occurs fully.

Right after midnight, on January 31st, a sequence of lunar events can be observed.

India will be able to see the lunar eclipse 2018. You'd see people experiencing sunrise and sunset all at the same time.

"It disappears and then actually comes back and then disappears again", he said.

During totality, the moon may turn red or coppery. This causes the moon to take on a shade of red while the Earth blocks almost all of the Sun's light.
