This full moon will actually be the second full moon in January, which is why it's referred to as a blue moon.

It tweeted yesterday: "What do you get when you have a supermoon, which also happens to be the 2nd full Moon of the month, passing through Earth's shadow during a total lunar eclipse?".

While the Bloodmoon is the lunar eclipse, where the moon appears reddish after light from the sun is filtered through earth's atmosphere.

The next total lunar eclipse visible in Edmonton will be on January 20, 2019. Making the event even more special is that the moon is at perigee, its closest approach to Earth, creating a "Supermoon" Tuesday night into Wednesday. It's the second full moon of the month, commonly known as a "blue moon".

Skywatchers in California, western Canada, Hawaii, Alaska, Australia and eastern Asia should be able to see the entire eclipse, provided the westher remains favourable. "Obviously, the farther west you go, the more likely you're going to be able to see it".

According to him, based on the earlier statement by National Space Agency (Angkasa), eclipses are taking place when the moon is rising in the eastern horizon, while in Sabah and Sarawak, this phenomenon will begin after moonrise.

For the first time in the Americas in more than 150 years, a blue moon, supermoon and lunar eclipse will fall on the same night!

A total lunar eclipse, thus "blood moon" too.

The phases of the Moon are caused by the changing angle of illumination of the Sun on the surface of the Moon, and have nothing to do with the shadow of the Earth. The darker part of Earth's shadow will begin to blanket part of the Moon with a reddish tint at 6:48 a.m. EST, but the Moon will set less than a half-hour later. It's recommended that those wanting to get a glimpse of the lunar eclipse in WAVE Country find a high point or unobstructed area with a clear view west-northwest. "It's basically just your eyes alone, that's all you really need to see the red moon". At 4:51 a.m. CST the penumbra - or lighter part of Earth's shadow - will touch the Moon.

"It disappears and then actually comes back and then disappears again", he said.

When: Wednesday, January 31st, best viewing 6:15 a.m. until moon sets near 7:00 a.m.

That said, if you miss this eclipse, don't worry.

And a blood moon?

Greatest eclipse at 5:30 a.m. "The overall eclipse ends at 12.08 midnight on Feb 1", he explained.
