  • Super Blue Blood-Moon What you need to know

For the first time in 35 years, a blue moon will occur during a total lunar eclipse on January 31, an event some have taken to calling a "super blue blood moon". The first happened on December 3, 2017, NASA said in a report. It's simply one part of a double treat for sky watchers on Wednesday, Jan. 31.

Lunar Eclipse occurs about two times annually.

So it's been nice to start the last couple weeks like that", he added. "No complaints about last week", McIlroy said. The greens in the morning are ideal and there wasn't much wind for probably the first 12 or 13 holes.

"During a lunar eclipse, the temperature swing is so dramatic that it's as if the surface of the moon goes from being in an oven to being in a freezer in just a few hours", said Noah Petro, deputy project scientist for NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. This lunar eclipse is coinciding with a blue and witness blue moon. As a result, the moon appears with a faint copper or blood red colour glow. During a Supermoon, the moon appears up to 30 percent brighter than a regular full moon that doesn't have a cool name. For 77 minutes, the usually silvery moon will be covered with a blood-red/ochre shadow. Usually this means we get one full moon and one new moon each calendar month. January's first full moon showed up on New Year's Day.

Johnston adds that the country's Eastern time zone will have the most trouble seeing the eclipse on January 31, which begins at 5:51 a.m. ET. A super blue blood moon eclipse will be visible in North American, Asia, and Australia. This is truly a rarity given that double blue moons will occur 4 - 5 years in a century.

She said those in the Naperville and Fox Valley areas and all around the northern IL suburbs can view the lunar event until the moon sets at 7:05 a.m. NASA says "Californians and viewers in western Canada will be treated to the total eclipse phase from start to finish, though the penumbral shadow will pass after the Moon has set". The moon will take on that rusty orange color during totality.

Total eclipse ends at 6:08 a.m.
