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

"Make sure you have a clear line of sight to the horizon in the west, opposite from where the sun will rise". The moon will not actually appear purple, nor will have it a cape - but Wednesday is a great time to gaze up and enjoy the night sky. The peak eclipse is just out of sight from the continental USA when it happens, but watchers in the east coast can still catch the Blue Supermoon getting eclipsed at early morning of January 31. Since the lunar event is expected to happen during the evening, the moon will not go into complete darkness, rather the light will be scattered and may appear reddish. This position is called perigee and simply means that the moon is in the part of its orbit that puts it closest to Earth. And unlike a solar eclipse, a lunar eclipse is perfectly safe to watch in the night with the naked eye. The moon will still be fully visible, but because the Earth will be between the moon and the sun the moon should take on a deep orange hue.

The next total lunar eclipse visible across North America will occur January 21, 2019.

"At first, the moon will look dark gray in color during the overnight hours", said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams.
