Total lunar eclipse to be seen across Russian Federation on January 31

Depending on where you live, you are in for quite the treat, something that has not been seen in over 150 years, as the Super Blue Blood Moon is almost upon us!

"Its going to look pretty cool if youre living in California", said Dr. Craig Joseph, professor and head of the St Petersburg College Planetarium. NASA has called it Lunar trilogy since there are three events occurring at once and all related to the Moon.

A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is closer to Earth in its orbit and as a result appears about 14% brighter than usual. While this isnt specifically an astrological term, it has been drawing more attention to the stars.

But Glover said it's unlikely we'll see much of it in P.E.I. A total lunar eclipse can happen only when the sun, Earth and full moon are perfectly lined up, in that order. The light filtering through the Earth's atmosphere reflects on the moon, giving it a reddish hue. If you live in an area with a lot of tall trees or buildings covering the view of the horizon, you might be out of luck in seeing a majority of the partial eclipse unless you can find a higher vantage point.

"Unfortunately, eclipse viewing will be more challenging in the Eastern time zone".

A Blue Moon is another name for the second full moon in a calendar month. Blue moons only happen about once every 2.7 years.

In some parts of Australia, Wednesday night's full moon will also be a blue moon, which has nothing to do with the colour blue.

Met office chief says the moon will be visible from everywhere in Pakistan, depending on weather conditions.

Joseph said Tampa Bay residents shouldnt fret.

It might be 19 years before we get to see the next one because as of right now, Wednesday morning is expected to be a cloudy one. It'll be a long wait for skywatchers in the United States as the next visible lunar eclipse will be on January 21st, 2019. "Itll be near the evening time which is a great for viewing".
