When the moon rises the evening of January 30, at approximately 4:26 p.m., as long as the sky is clear enough, you will be able to see the 2 full moon of the month (a.k.a. the blue moon). Australians will see another lunar eclipse in July this year, when the Earth, sun and moon come together again in flawless alignment. A blue moon is the second full moon in a month.

As a result, totally eclipsed moons are sometimes also called "blood moons".

As the sky begins to brighten, the moon will just be entering the outer part of the Earth's shadow, making the eclipse hard to see, Johnson said.

Super: because the moon will be close to earth.

Police say Canadian billionaire, wife apparently murdered
So far, 127 witnesses have been interviewed, but the list of people that detectives still need to speak with is growing, she said. Toronto police were seen leaving the Sherman household Friday morning, taking down yellow tape from the crime scene.

NASA says those in the eastern part of the US will have just a half an hour, starting at 6:45 a.m., to see the phenomenon before the moon sets at 7:15 a.m. on the 31st.

Neither a super-, blue or blood moon is overly rare, Aufdenberg said. When the eclipse of January 31 is nearly over, the moon would have just crossed the perigee position a day earlier with a distance of 358,993 kilometers from the Earth, making this eclipse as "Supermoon Eclipse". No full moon for February!

The best time to see the supermoon will be directly after moonrise and just before sunrise.

Moonset occurs at 7:04 a.m., leaving only about 16 minutes of eclipse visible, assuming you can see all the way down to the horizon. The color is caused by sunlight passing through the Earth's atmosphere and falling upon the surface of the moon. Lunar eclipses happen at least twice a year, but total lunar eclipses only happen every two to three years.

The deal would break Arsenal's record transfer fee, which is now the £45m they paid to Lyon for striker Alexandre Lacazette in the summer.

Lunar eclipses usually occur a few times year.

Likewise, the moon will turn take on a reddish hue - hence, the blood name - although depending on the make-up of the atmosphere, it could be ochre brown or an orange colour. The moon sets before total eclipse here ME and the entire East Coast. The total phase of the eclipse is visible from only a narrow path and requires special precautions to view. In New Jersey we will see only a small portion of the eclipse. Viewers from eastern Asia, the Pacific, and western North America will get the best view, but viewers in eastern North America and Europe will also catch a partial eclipse. This occurs every 29.5 days, when the moon is directly opposite the sun relative to the earth. "Tides that happen when the moon is full and near perigee [occur] about three to four times per year", said Mark Breen, senior meteorologist at the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium. The eclipse starts at 5:51 a.m.

To get an original shot, Ingalls suggests taking a picture that puts the moon in context of a local landmark, something that gives your photo a sense of place.
