Lunar eclipses are pretty common, but during the early morning hours of tomorrow, Jan. 31, stargazers are in for a special treat. Those who are up early enough will be able to catch a sighting of what’s being called a “super blue blood moon” that will be visible at varying times, depending on where you are located in the world.
According to The New York Times, the moon will appear to glow red, looking somewhat like it is illuminated by red flame. This will occur because the Earth will be situated between the sun and the moon, and the special alignment will cast a cool red glow on the surface. This event is also special because it happens to coincide with a blue moon, meaning the second full moon of the month, and with a supermoon, meaning the moon is a bit closer to the earth than usual. All of these cosmic events combine to create the super blue blood moon, a larger-than-usual, full blue moon with a reddish hue.
“For the (continental) U.S., the viewing will be best in the West,” Gordon Johnston, program executive and lunar blogger at NASA Headquarters in Washington, claimed, according to NASA’s official blog. “Set your alarm early and go out and take a look.” NASA will also provide a live feed of the eclipse if you feel like witnessing it from inside the comfort of your own home.
The last time that these occurred all at once was in 1866, and after tomorrow, it won’t occur again until 2037.
If you’re waking and baking to catch the monumental event, you may want to try some appropriate named strains.
