Sky gazers, don't miss the super blue moon lunar eclipse Wednesday morning

Rain showers over the Bundaberg region

"Blood Moon" occurs during a total lunar eclipse. "It's basically just your eyes alone, that's all you really need to see the red moon". On this same date, it will be at perigee-closest distance to earth and the eclipse will give it a reddish hue due to the sun´s rays, especially as the red of the spectrum will be bent. News of this being the first total eclipse blue moon in 150 years has been making its rounds on social media. If you sign up to Slooh, they will be livestreaming the moon's phase, which will last approximately five hours. "While the Moon is in the Earth's shadow it will take on a reddish tint, known as a 'blood moon". The rapid change in temperature that will occur on the moon when it slips into and out of Earth's shadow Wednesday will allow Elphic's team to leverage heat-sensing equipment to gain a better understanding of the moon's surface.

Kota Kinabalu: The 30-storey aluminium and glass building of Yayasan Sabah Group (YSG) Headquarters, the Menara Tun Mustapha, in Likas, will be one of the locations in the country to observe the total lunar eclipse on Jan 31. It'll be a blue moon, at least in name, because it will be the second full moon within a calendar month.

The combination of three lunar phenomenon dubbed the Super Blue Blood Moon will be visible on Jan 31, 2018, between 7pm till midnight. The last time this happened was March 31, 1866.

However, the solar eclipse comes at a specific time, which means it it's not night time in your part of the world, you'll simply see the regular full moon come sundown. But when you break it all down, what exactly makes this moon so unusual?

According to Saran, the second total lunar eclipse of the year will take place on July 27.

The next eclipse visible from western Kentucky will be a total lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019.

If you've got a good imagination, the best view would be from the moon, he says. The eclipse begins at 3:48 a.m. PST and will reach a peak between 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. People on the East Coast will not have as great a view, since the eclipse begins just as the moon is about to set and the sky is getting lighter.

It's a total lunar eclipse! NASA blogger Gordon Johnston says the best way to see it from this region will be to "get to a high place" and find a clear line of sight to the horizon in the west-northwest, "opposite from where the sun will rise".
