A super blue blood moon set to appear Wednesday

This is when the moon will start to move into the Earth's shadow.

A full moon occurs when we see its entire lit-up side. This phenomenon happens once every 29.5 days when the lunar cycle is ending and the Moon is opposing the Sun.

The first is a bit more complicated, referring to the third full moon in an astronomical season with four full moons (compared to the usual three). But twice in each lunar cycle, the moon does cross into our planet's orbital plane.

The total lunar eclipse, which can be seen from everywhere in India, begins at 5.20 pm with what is called the partial shadow or penumbra of the earth s shadow striking the moon, a release from the centre said.

A supermoon is a full moon at its closest point to the Earth on its orbit - known as perigee.

A#Total Lunar Eclipse is predicted to occur in the early hours of January 31. We typically get about 4-6 supermoons per year, though last year we only had one. "While the Moon is in the Earth's shadow it will take on a reddish tint, known as a 'blood moon".

During totality, the moon may turn red or coppery.

This is why we have blue skies and red sunrises and sunsets.

However, for those in the Middle East, Asia, eastern Russia, Australia and New Zealand, the "super blue blood moon" can be seen during moonrise in the morning on the 31st.

Some parts of the United States will be treated to a lunar eclipse, making this the first lunar trifecta in 150 years. The origin of the phrase "blue moon" is unknown and has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon. In addition to being full, it will be both blue and orange.

As mentioned, this month will have a blue moon. And we're just squeezing in this second full moon on January 31. Usually months have only one full moon, but occasionally a second one sneaks in. This is where the phrase "Once in a blue moon" comes from.

The Moon-Earth distance is not fixed.

When the moon is full late on Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, it will perfectly align with the sun and the Earth to cause an eclipse. 2017 only experienced One supermoon and that was in December.

There was also a supermoon on the night of January 1.

A supermoon appears bigger and brighter.
