And a blood moon is phrase used to describe the moon during a total lunar eclipse - when the Earth passes between the moon and the sun.

January 31st 2018 is definitely going to be a very special night for the moon as a rare combination of three celestial events, occurring only once every 150 years is about to take place. The combination of a supermoon and lunar eclipse will result in a visually striking moon that is the largest we see in orbit, so you should make sure to step outside at night on the 31st - just do not forget to wear a jacket! The following infographic from Space.com explains the blue moon.The event will be observed well in central and eastern Asia, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia.

Alaska, Hawaii and parts of western USA will experience the full eclipse.

According to NASA, the spectacle will be viewable "from western North America across the pacific to Eastern Asia". As per reports, moon's lower half shall be visible brighter than the upper half. There has already been one full moon this month - the supermoon that was visible in the evening of the 1st and early morning of the 2nd.

On January 31, some U.S-based stargazers will also be treated to a total lunar eclipse.

The fire was put out several hours later and comes just days after a fire in the Claremont section of the Bronx killed 12 people. The multi-storey building is situated on the corner of the Commonwealth and Bronx River avenues in Van Nest.

Indeed, these events make the luminescent orb appear roughly 14% bigger and 30% brighter than typical full moons.

We kicked off the New Year with a "wolf full moon", named for the howled of wolves in winter.

A "blue moon" will appear at 9:31 p.m. The moon won't actually be blue, because the term simply refers to the second full moon in a month. A supermoon is when the full moon occurs alongside the "perigee" of the lunar orbit. 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.

For people in areas where it will be visible, the moon will look red as a result of all of the world's sun events reflecting off its surface; the appearance that netted it the nickname, blood moon. These rare events also provide the scientists a chance to study the celestial elements closely.
