Visakhapatnam will witness the Super Blue Blood moon, rare lunar eclipse that occurs only once in a few decades, on January 31 about 20 minutes before it is seen in the rest of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. It happens about every three years, which is infrequently enough to make "blue moon" synonymous with rarity.

Astronomy enthusiasts won't be the only moon-watchers.

Because of that, we usually only have one full moon in any given month.

With the moon setting, make sure you have a non-obstructed view of the western sky.

Wednesday's lunar eclipse will not be fully visible in Ottawa, but sky-gazers can still catch a glimpse of it shortly before the moon sets in the morning. Such phenomenon happens when the Earth comes in between Sun and the Moon. Because of the timing of the full moons, February will not have one and March will have two.

NASA says the super blue blood moon will be visible early Wednesday in Western Canada, so long as it's not obscured by clouds.

"The temperatures on the surface, and how they change, tell us a lot about how fluffy or compacted the soil is on the surface of the moon", Elphic said.

It happens every 29 and a half days, and each month's full moon has a special name.

The next eclipse visible from western Kentucky will be a total lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019.

Partial eclipse ends at 7:11 a.m.

Weather permitting, go out on the morning of January 31, and you can watch orbital motion in action as the shadow of the Earth sweeps across the face of the Moon.

Further west, stargazers will be able to see more of the eclipse.

"Now you might think at that time the moon should just disappear because there's no direct sunlight getting to it, but it takes on a red or copper glow because a little bit of sunlight passes through the earth's atmosphere, bending around the earth and illuminating the moon with its eerie reddish colour". Supermoons are those that occur when the moon is at its closest approach (perigee) on its orbit around the earth.

What is a blue moon?

The gas molecules of Earth's atmosphere scatter bluer wavelengths of light from the sun, while redder wavelengths pass straight through.

A rare lunar occurrence is set to be enjoyed by most of the world as eyes will turn to the skies when our moon becomes a Super Blue Blood Moon - for the first time in 150 years.

That entirely depends on where you live. The forthcoming supermoon is the last in a trilogy that began on December 3 with the second visible on New Year's Day.
