Watch the Super Blue BloodMoon Before You Go to Work on Wednesday
What could be more impressive than a super moon, rarer than a blue moon and better than a blood moon? A combination of all three!
A super blue blood moon will be taking place – a spectacle that hasn’t been seen in the US since 1866.
Early Wednesday morning, if you live in the western part of the United States, the moon will bloom red, like a giant rose in the predawn sky.
The super blue blood moon features three different astronomical events.
This casts a shadow across the moon, giving it a red glow.
When can I see the eclipse?
It takes several hours for the moon to pass through the Earth’s shadow. First, it dips through the penumbra — the outer, lighter part of the shadow — and then the umbra — which is the darker
portion that creates the reddish glow, known as totality.
Viewers on the West Coast will have the best seats in the continental United States. They will be able to watch the eclipse from start until finish, unabated by sunrise. The blood moon portion of the eclipse will enter totality at 4:51 a.m. and peak at 5:30 a.m. It will end about 6:05 a.m. local time.
Partial Eclipse Begins – Jan 31 at 3:48 AM
Full Eclipse Begins – Jan 31 4:51 AM
Maximum Eclipse – Jan 31 5:29 AM
Full Eclipse Ends – Jan 31 6:07 AM
