'Super Blue Blood Moon' coming on January 31!

OMG
NASA


On the 31st of January, the world will be able to see the 'Super Blue Blood Moon.'

What makes the 'Super Blue Blood Moon' special is, according to Nasa when the Moon is closer to Earth in its orbit (perigee) it becomes about 14 percent brighter than usual.

It’s also the second full moon of the month, commonly known as a 'blue moon.'

The 'Super Blue Blood Moon' will pass through Earth’s shadow to give viewers in the right location a total lunar eclipse.

While the Moon is in the Earth’s shadow it will take on a reddish tint, known as a 'blood moon.'

For those of us who are living in the Middle East, the 'Super Blue Blood Moon' can be seen during moonrise in the morning on the 31st.
