Don't miss the 'super blue blood moon' on Wednesday

Don't miss the 'super blue blood moon' on Wednesday

It's also the first time in 150 years that the Americas will see a blue moon total eclipse.

The super blue blood moon was last observed in the Philippines on December 30, 1982.

People from Rajasthan and other parts of Western India can see it between 6:21 PM IST and 7:37 PM IST, while the rest of India should be able to view it between 5:18 PM IST and 6:21 PM IST. "Usually I don't get to do too much during [campus events] because I'm sort of the organizer, but I hope to get some pictures of [the super blue blood moon]", he said. The moon appears 14 per cent larger and about 30 per cent brighter than usual, according to Space.com. Explaining the phenomenon, Sidharth said that during the lunar eclipse, the earth comes exactly between the sun and the moon and the earth's shadow falls on the moon. In these scenarios, the moon, the earth and the sun are basically in a straight line. Even though the phrase "once in blue moon" suggests they're rare, blue moons-the second full moon in a one-month period-are relatively frequent, taking place once every 2.7 years. The best viewing will be in western North America. At 6:20 a.m., the first shadowy bite out of the moon will begin, followed by a partial eclipse at 6:48 a.m. The way light waves are scattered by the atmosphere - a process called Rayleigh scattering - also accounts for the colors you see at sunrise and sunset. This is very rare and there's no saying when it'll happen again, so you better look out your window tomorrow night.

Be there outdoors the moment evening sets in on 31 January 2018.

PSU Bank stocks in red, after disappointment over recap plans
The bonds will not have Statutory Liquidity Ratio (SLR) and a tenure of 10 to 15 years. "There is not going to be a public issue". The government will ensure disbursement of 1 lakh crore rupees to PSU banks by march this year.

"With the total eclipse, it'll be a royal spectacle indeed: a "super blue blood" Moon". A blue moon refers to a second full moon during the same month. Of all full moons, a super moon happens 25 percent of the time.

Since this is a lunar eclipse and not a solar eclipse, no eye protection is necessary.

So, the "super blue blood moon" happens when a blue moon passes through Earth's shadow, giving some viewers a total lunar eclipse and as it does so, the moon will turn a reddish hue meaning it is also a blood moon, according to NASA. If you would rather watch it from the comfort of your home, NASA will be streaming a live broadcast while it occurs.
