First Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in 150 Years Occurring this Month

After this year, the next time that a Blue Moon passes through Earth's umbra will be on 31 December 2028 and, after that, on 31 January 2037.

A supermoon - a term coined by astrologer Richard Nolle - is a phenomenon that occurs when a full moon coincides with the moon being the closest it gets to the Earth on its orbit.

The commonly used definition of a supermoon is any full moon that falls within the 90% of the lunar orbit closest to Earth. The first full moon of the month shined on New Year's Day, and the second will peak on January 31 - marking the blue moon event. Usually, there's only one full moon per month but, sometimes, once every two and a half years, two such events happen in the same month.

Justin Timberlake links up with Timbaland to drop new single "Filthy"
The singer and In Time actor returns with " Filthy ", the first song lifted from his Man of the Woods album, due out next month. Mark Romanek directed the video. " Filthy " carries credits from Timberlake, Timbaland and Danja as co-producers and co-writers.

If you could compare them side by side, most people would see that supermoons really are brighter and slightly bigger than a normal full moon. The last day of January will see the third supermoon in the sequence.

The Super Blue Blood Moon actually represents the conjunction of three separate events.

The end of this month will see the beginning of one of the moon's most lovely nights. Both of these eclipses will be total.

Further, Modi suggested that single women pilgrims be excluded from the lottery system implemented to select Haj pilgrims. Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the youth of the nation to contribute in the making of a New India.

Regardless of how that turns out, the moon will be faithfully making its rounds up in the sky. The second one is marked by a blue moon.

The month's second full moon on January 31 is known as a blue moon.

The duration of the Blue Moon total lunar eclipse will be 77 minutes as the moon will track through the southern part of the Earth's shadow. This usually happens about every 2.7 years, though because February has only 28 days, a number of regions will get another blue moon in March 2018.

Kim Jong Un warns enemies of 'Nuclear Button'
Kim said he would consider sending a delegation to the Winter Olympics Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea , in February. Ship-to-ship trade with North Korea at sea is prohibited under United Nations sanctions adopted September 11.

There's still one thing to explain, namely the blood moon denomination. Heading farther west into western Asia, the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, the eclipse will already be underway as the moon rises. Others in the western half of the US will still get a good show, with the total phase of the eclipse beginning at 4:51 a.m. PST.
