Blue Moon in Qatar skies next Wednesday

Украинцы станут свидетелями кровавого лунного затмения

To get an original shot, Ingalls suggests taking a picture that puts the moon in context of a local landmark, something that gives your photo a sense of place. The moon doesn't travel in a circle around the earth, but rather travels in an egg shape.

A supermoon occurs when a full moon coincides with its closest approach during orbit to Earth, known as a perigee. It will be a super bloody blue moon all in the same 20 hours. Because of its closeness, it's expected to appear 13 percent wider and 28 percent larger than it did during it did on January 15, when the orb was at its furthest point from Earth.

One year earlier, an American psychiatrist wrote a book entitled How The Moon Affects You, warning that lunar cycles could cause huge earthquakes (including a 1982 prediction for California that did not come true) and affect the human body.

We're a people who love quirky events, and the coincidence of the blue moon, supermoon and blood moon has been widely reported with glee - and attracted some warnings from the supernatural realm.

Stargazers are privy to a celestial triple threat at the end of this month. Aufdenberg said the event promised to be "a real zinger". Since the moon needs to be behind the Earth, relative to the sun, a lunar eclipse can only happen on a full moon.

Pierce explains that a lunar eclipse occurs when earth's shadow blocks the sun's light, which otherwise reflects off the moon. NASA has a list of ideal viewing times for each time zone.

The Indian Ambassador also mentioned that two Yog-gurus have arrived here from India , who will be giving training sessions here. Prime Minister Modi will host a dinner for the leading global chief executive officers at the WEF Summit in Davos on January 22.

Can I see the supermoon and lunar eclipse without going outside?

Viewers in Whatcom County will have to wake up before sunrise to see the eclipse. If you can't go out to see it, or clouds obscure your view, NASA TV plans to broadcast the entire event. When the sun, earth and moon align in a straight line during full moon, it makes earth block the light from the sun from reaching the Moon. We'll only have three this winter, so the January 31 full moon won't be blue by this definition. At its most technical, a blood moon is a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses or tetrad, which is not the case for the upcoming eclipse.

This is now the hip slang term for any total lunar eclipse, mainly because during totality the moon becomes bloody red in color when it crosses into the Earth's shadow. He says that it's important to keep in mind that the moon is a moving object: "It's a balancing act between trying to get the right exposure and realizing that the shutter speed typically needs to be a lot faster". While it will be a supermoon, it won't be a blue moon.

"Supermoon" is a popular term for what astronomers call a "perigee full moon". Obviously, most months have a single full moon except, occasionally, we get two.

When will the next super blue blood moon occur? "That is mostly due to it being slightly closer to us, but also the moon always looks brighter in the winter".
