'Super-Blue-Blood Moon' Visible Wednesday Morning In Central Texas

Super blue blood moon returns

Super blue blood moon: what time you can see the celestial event in Perth, WA?

But you'll have to get up early Wednesday to see the Super Blue Blood Moon.

There will also be a blue moon, which occurs when you have two full moons in one month.

A "super moon" means the full moon will appear a little bit larger than it usually does.

The best time to view the moon with a reddish tint in the NY to D.C. area is around 6:48 a.m. Wednesday, according to NASA. In the Eastern Time Zone, the moon will have set before it the eclipse occurs.

"It's a term for when the moon goes into the Earth's shadow for a total lunar eclipse", Parsons said.

Tomorrow morning there will be a lunar trifecta: the super blue blood moon.

It does not happen regularly, so you probably heard the phrase "once in a blue moon". We'll have to wait 19 years for another double blue moon. The Moon is also super - meaning it's the closest it gets to Earth in its orbit.

"The red colour during a lunar eclipse is very distinctive and it's a rare treat to be able to see a blood red moon", said Brian Rachford, associate professor of physics at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

But Glover said it's unlikely we'll see much of it in P.E.I.

The last time all three events occurred in North America was almost 150 years ago. Residents won't be able to see the final stages after about 6 a.m. because the moon will sink below the horizon.

Lovers of all things astronomical can look forward to a rare celestial event on Wednesday when three lunar phenomena collide. Johnston said the January 21, 2019 lunar eclipse will be visible throughout all of the USA and will be a supermoon, though it won't be a blue moon.

According to the article on NASA's website, at 4:51 a.m. CST the penumbra - or lighter part of Earth's shadow - will touch the Moon.By about 6:15 a.m. CST the Earth's reddish shadow will be clearly noticeable on the Moon. Blue moon, however, does not refer to the moon's color (no the moon will not be purple tomorrow morning).

The partial eclipse will start up around 5:48 Wednesday morning.

At 5:47 AM, the main shadow of the Earth will move across the moon and will slowly turn red.

While the partial eclipse would begin at 16.48 PST whereas the total eclipse would start at 17.52 PST, however, the greatest eclipse time is 18.31 PST.
