  • Rare super bloody blue moon to be visible on January 31

Scientists have labelled Wednesday's event a "celestial trifecta", meaning it's a supermoon, a blood moon and a blue moon all rolled into one.

Will pass through Earth's shadow during a lunar eclipse and take on a reddish tint, known as a "blood moon".

Sky-watchers and photographers should set their alarm clocks to be up and ready by 3:48 a.m. Wednesday in order to witness a lunar phenomenon 150 years in the making. The first is the super moon, wherein the moon is closer to the Earth in its orbit, and it appears much larger and brighter than the usual full moon.

United Kingdom to 'maintain continuity' with European Union rules
Asked if that increased the risks of no-deal Brexit, the diplomat said yes, "in particular given the ticking clock". He said the chancellor's remarks had "overshadowed" his main point that May wants a deep trade deal with the EU.

This lunar eclipse is being called the Super, Blue, Blood Moon eclipse. For residents of those territories, the "lunar show" will begin early in the morning on Wednesday, January 31.

The good news: 100% chance of seeing the blue moon. This supermoon will look 14percent more significant than the average moon. A blue moon is the second full moon in a month, and a blood moon is a lunar eclipse. Rather, it comes from the fact this will be the second full moon we see in the month of January, which is rare. The term for this extra full moon has nothing to do with the moon actually appearing blue, though on rare occasions, dust or smoke particles may give the moon a blueish hue.

Dr Gregory, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, said the moon will be visible at around 5 pm and will only be present for a short time of three hours.
