UAE- Once in a blue moon is here! It's a celestial treat

And unlike a solar eclipse, a lunar eclipse is perfectly safe to watch in the night with the naked eye.

The celestial show that NASA has dubbed a "super blue blood moon" is due to embellish the predawn sky on Wednesday, a rare convergence of three lunar spectacles: a blue moon, a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse.

This will be the first of two lunar eclipses in 2018.

For observers living in NY or Washington D.C., the space agency suggests a 6.45 a.m. ET start for the best viewing. Totality will occur at 4:52 a.m., when the moon is fully immersed in the Earth's shadow.

A blood moon occurs when sunlight to the moon is blocked by the earth's shadow during an eclipse.

The best way to view the "super blue moon eclipse" is to wake up early and travel to an open space free of buildings and light pollution. This will be the first time in 150 years that a blue moon also coincides with a total lunar eclipse.

NASA says residents in Australia - as well as the Middle East, Asia, eastern Russian Federation and New Zealand will be able to view the super blue blood moon and lunar eclipse during moonrise in the evening of January 31. For skywatchers in the central and eastern USA, only a partial eclipse will be visible since the moon will set before totality.

The eclipse will last nearly 3½ hours from the beginning of the partial phase at 3:48 a.m. PT until it ends at 7:12 a.m. PT, according to.

"If people are having to get up for work or school, or if they're willing to get up, then this is very democratic - anyone can just go outside and look for the moon". The third makes it a Supermoon i.e. the moon will be the closest to the Earth.

Early Wednesday morning, January 31, will bring a rare treat for skygazers in many parts of the world: It's a full moon on the night of January 31, and the second one in one calendar month, so it becomes a blue moon by our modern definition. "So if you live in Kansas City or Chicago, your best viewing will be from about 6:15-6:30 a.m", said Johnston.

Americans in the east are advised to head outside to a high place at 6.45am ET, while those in the mid-west will have the best viewing at 6.15am-6.30am CST time. The partial eclipse will end at 7.11pm. Since the total eclipse happens right at moonset, it may be hard for people in western Kentucky to see it. Full moons are typically. Long after the socializing fell by the wayside, Johnston's monthly blog lives on, with a dedicated following on NASA's lunar website,

The Earth's atmosphere will filter out nearly all of the visible light, which is all the colors of the rainbow, except for orange and red, which is why the moon will appear reddish-orange.

The Planetarium will also hold a briefing on the phenomenon, an astro-photography shoot and lunar eclipse prayers.

He said many people are "afraid" of eclipses and believe them to be "bad luck" because of false warnings issued by astrologers, which he said is not science. The eclipse will be visible before sunrise on January 31 for those in North America, Alaska and Hawaii.

Those in the Middle East, Asia, eastern Russia, Australia and New Zealand will catch the event during moonrise on the last day of the month.
