Total lunar eclipse to be visible from Taiwan Jan. 31

A lunar eclipse

Serendipity strikes on Wednesday, Jan. 31 as a total lunar eclipse will happen at the same time as a super moon and a blue Moon.

It's also the second full moon of the month which is known as a "blue moon".

Consequently, the Moon does not usually disappear from view, instead, it is dimmed and often takes on a reddish colour.

Nonetheless, UK stargazers will still have an awesome view of the supermoon, which is caused when the moon comes within 90 percent of its perigee, or closest distance to earth. This is the first run through in over 150 years that the three lunar occasions will correspond, as indicated by an announcement from NASA.

"Weather permitting, the West Coast, Alaska and Hawaii will have a spectacular view of totality from start to finish", Gordon Johnston, program executive and NASA lunar blogger, explained in a post. "Set your alert early and go out and investigate".

During the January 31 lunar eclipse, astronomers will point thermal cameras at the moon, using the Haleakala Observatory on the island of Maui in Hawaii, NASA said. Be that as it may, watchers in the Middle East, Asia, eastern Russia, Australia and New Zealand will see the Super Blue Blood Moon amid moonrise toward the beginning of the day, as per the NASA articulation. Totality starts around 5:51 a.m., lasting a little more than an hour, with the darkest phase at 6:29 a.m. Totality ends at 7:07 a.m. "But it's another great chance to watch the moon".

"Unfortunately, eclipse viewing will be more challenging in the Eastern time zone", he continued. Since the moon needs to be behind the Earth, relative to the sun, a lunar eclipse can only happen on a full moon. All of that means that the moon will appear to us as if it darkens as it travels across the night sky, until it's at its darkest when it's aligned perfectly in the shadow of the Earth. "However, one should be very careful as deep inner fears will surface during an eclipse", Roopesh R., Specialist in Spiritual Subjects, answered on being asked about the effects of the total lunar eclipse according to Western Astrology.

For those in the Central time zone, the lunar eclipse will begin around 4:51 a.m. local time.

The surface of the moon is covered in lunar regolith - a sticky mixture of dust, soil, small and broken loose rocks, and other such material - which is estimated to be anywhere between 4-5 meters and 15 meters deep, depending on where you look on the moon. As the sun shines, it creates a shadow behind the earth. So get outside to a high place and make sure you have a clear line of sight to the horizon in the west-northwest, opposite from where the Sun will rise. At the peak of daytime on the moon, it is about 100 degrees Celsius, hot enough to boil water just by leaving it out.
