Nugget of Knowledge: Blood, Blue and Super Moon!
January 16, 2018 - Supermoon
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The initial month of 2018 will finish with a singular lunar event: a Blood Moon, Blue Moon, Super Moon on Jan 31.
It’s a blood moon since it’ll spin red. We’ll see a sum lunar obscure that day; during least, tools of a United States will.
Here in a Eastern time zone, we’ll see a start of a eclipse. It’ll be partial, though a moon will set before a start of a sum proviso a morning of Jan 31.
It’s a blue moon since it’s a second full moon we’ll see in one month. You know a expression, once in a Blue Moon?
We’ll have another Blue Moon on Mar 31.
And it’ll be a Super Moon since during this full moon phase, it’ll be closest to Earth. It’ll seem 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter to us a dusk of Jan 30.
The final time we saw a Blue Moon sum obscure in North America was Mar 31, 1866.
