Lucky sky-watchers are about to get a cosmic three-for-one deal, as the second super-size full moon in a month undergoes a dramatic total lunar eclipse on January 31. According to eclipse experts, the event marks the first time anyone on Earth has seen this celestial trifecta in 35 years—the exact date was December 30 1982.
The moon will appear larger, reddish and brighter when a total lunar eclipse occurs during a blue moon and a supermoon. Many have already begun calling it a ‘super blue blood moon’ eclipse. The lunar eclipse is expected to last for about an hour. In India it would start at 6.21 pm on January 31 2018. It would be visible till 7.37 pm Indian Standard Time.
