Jan. 31, 2018 Super Blue Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse

January 31 brought a lunar trifecta: the super blue blood Moon! Starting at 5:30 a.m. Eastern, NASA TV offered a live stream of the Moon. This full moon is the third in a series of “supermoons,” when the Moon is closer to Earth in its orbit — known as perigee — and about 14 percent brighter than usual. It’s the second full moon of the month, commonly known as a “blue moon.” The super blue moon passed through Earth’s shadow to give viewers in the right location a total lunar eclipse. While the Moon is in the Earth’s shadow it took on a reddish tint, known as a “blood moon.”
