The Super Blue Blood Moon: What can we expect in Central Ga?

A rare'super blue blood moon is set to appear in the skies over Australia

Despite what you'll probably see float around on social media, the moon won't actually appear blue.

In 1946, amateur astronomer James Hugh Pruett incorrectly defined a blue moon as the second full moon in a month, which led to the naming of the second lunar event.

"Weather permitting, the west coast, Alaska and Hawaii will have a spectacular view of totality from start to finish", said Johnston.

The Central Time Zone will be able to view it the best. The next super blue moon won't be until next January.

The initial full moon has taken place in the first few days of 2018, and will also be the biggest supermoon of the year.

And although NASA has already learned a lot about the moon from its Apollo missions, Garvin calls it a "major scientific frontier with so much to teach us".

The moon is considered to be "super" when it is closest in orbit to the Earth.

Baker says the blood moon signifies the completion of the lunar eclipse. At 6:48am, the partial lunar eclipse will begin. Rather, because of the total lunar eclipse, the moon will appear blood red.

What is a blue moon?

PEOPLE around the world are getting excited at the prospect of seeing an incredibly rare "super blue blood moon" - but, if you live in Spain you'll have to make do with "just" a super, blue moon.

But anyone in the British Isles hoping to see a lunar eclipse will have to jump on an aeroplane.

As the moon will completely enter the earth's umbral shadow, it may look reddish, according to the Positional Astronomy Centre, India Meteorological Department.

It might be 19 years before we get to see the next one because as of right now, Wednesday morning is expected to be a cloudy one.

The last time it happened in Australia was December 30, 1983, the same year Bob Hawke was elected prime minister. Maximum eclipse occurs at 6:29 a.m. and the lunar eclipse ends at 7:07 a.m. local time, with the moon setting 7 minutes later. It's just a lunar eclipse that's happening when the moon is slightly closer and brighter than average.

While the partial eclipse would begin at 16.48 PST whereas the total eclipse would start at 17.52 PST, however, the greatest eclipse time is 18.31 PST.
