In an interesting occurrence, lunar eclipse, blue moon and the super moon will be seen together on January 31, an event happening after 35 years.
Here are some things you should know:
What is a lunar eclipse?
An eclipse in which the moon appears darkened as it passes into the earth’s shadow.
What is a blue moon?
A totally eclipsed Moon, sometimes called a Blood Moon, usually looks red, so this may be a rare opportunity to see a red Blue Moon. If this isn’t enough, it is also almost a super moon earning it the nickname Super Blue Blood Moon.
What is super moon?
Super moon is when the moon appears slightly bigger and brighter than normal.
The total lunar eclipse will be visible everywhere in India from 5:20 PM. The main eclipse (all three phenomena together) would start around 6.25 PM after sunset and go on till 7:25 PM, making it last for 1 hour and 16 minutes.
The tides might be higher than usual in rivers and seas but they won’t cause any disturbance.
