  • Here’s A Kindy Level Breakdown Of That ‘Super Blue Blood Moon’ Event

Three relatively rare lunar events will converge early Wednesday, creating an nearly unheard-of space spectacle that will have Southland sky-gazers waking up early to stare upwards, and will have the Griffith Observatory hosting an overnight eclipse party.

What makes this evening more interesting, is the fact that Super Moon and the Blue Moon are coinciding with a Total Lunar Eclipse on Wednesday, i.e. 31 january.

While the lunar eclipse will begin at about 4:50 AM, the best viewing will be from 6:10 AM until about 6:30 AM CST. Just make sure you get up early Wednesday morning or you will miss out.

A once-in-a-lifetime celestial event is going to happen on the night of 31 January - the Super Blue Blood Moon.

Andrea Mitchell: Nunes has turned House Intel Committee 'into a joke'
Democrats plan to release their own memo, which "points out the factual inaccuracies" of the Republican memo, according to Rep. The president has reportedly been pressing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Wray to fire McCabe, a Democrat.

Add to that mix the occurence of a total lunar eclipse and you have an event of "astronomical" proportions for stargazers. Of all full moons, a super moon happens 25 percent of the time.

The next time we will have two blue moons in the same year is 2037 and the next lunar eclipse will occur in January of 2019.

"I'm calling it the Super Bowl of moons", said lunar scientist Noah Petro on Monday from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.

Of course that's just for the US; the last super blue moon total eclipse happened on December 30, 1982.

A super moon occurs when the moon is at its closest orbit around the earth. It has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon.

It will take approximately one hour for the moon to pass completely into the Earth's shadow, meaning it will not be completely eclipsed until around 6:50 am. The moon will be quite low to the horizon, so you'll need an unobstructed view to the WNW.

On average, a blue moon takes place every two and a half years.

If you live in the Central time zone, viewing will be better, since the action begins when the Moon is higher in the western sky.
