A once in a blue moon spectacle

Rare super bloody blue moon to be visible on January 31 Blue moon eclipse coming this week

Nasa said the eclipse will offer scientists a chance to see what happens when the surface of the moon cools quickly.

A full moon is when we see its entire lit-up side.

The southern part of the Moon may appear slightly brighter due to the Moon's path through the umbral shadow being a little lower than dead center.

With this being a bigger, brighter, reddish-looking blue moon, perhaps we should call it a super purple moon.

A super blue blood moon will rise on january 31 with the added bonus of a lunar eclipse. Because of the timing of the full moons, February will not have one and March will have two.

This moon is pretty blue and super.

As the upcoming full moon is the second in the month, it will also be called the blue moon.

During this eclipse direct sunlight is completely blocked by the earth's shadow. Pacific Time. At 4:51 a.m., totality will begin, with best viewing between about 5:00 and 6:00 a.m. local time. The next solar eclipse will be a partial eclipse on October 14, 2023.

Al Hariri is encouraging residents to join the event by the astronomy group to learn more about celestial events. Tickets for the event cost Dh10 for kids, Dh20 for adults and Dh30 for a family of four members.

The National Planetarium in a statement said several telescopes will be provided for observing the lunar eclipse.

This full moon is also the third in a series of "supermoons", which happen when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit. Some Sun light is refracted through Earth's atmosphere and it is this bending of Sun light through the atmosphere that gives the eclipsed Moon it's reddish hue.

What is a super moon?

The event is causing a buzz because it combines three unusual lunar events - an extra big super moon, a blue moon and a total lunar eclipse. There are two different definitions of blue moon.

The sun emits all colors of light, making it appear white.

Ridley added that unlike the sun in a solar eclipse, the moon doesn't disappear during a lunar eclipse. That entirely depends on where you live. This type of lunar occultation is the first one in more than 150 years. But that is true only for time zones in and around the Americas, not for the rest of the world.

The Santa Barbara Astronomical Unit is not planning any public observations of the lunar eclipse, since it is occurring in the wee hours when it is hard to find an appropriate venue with parking and restroom facilities that is open.

According to its Group Manager (Corporate Communications) Sam S. Karnail, YSG, together with the Sabah Stargazer Association, will be holding the event which provides an opportunity for the public to witness the total eclipse of the moon, expected to take five hours and 17 minutes.
