Southern California gets clear view of super blue blood moon

Millions of people who got up early or stayed up late Wednesday morning were treated to a rare natural spectacle - a Super Blue Blood Moon eclipse swept over the skies for the first time since 1982. And, of course, less sleep often means cranky people, meaning there's a chance the super blue blood moon might not leave you feeling so super, after all.

"Blue moon" refers to the second full moon in a month.

The super moon is a term that astronomers have defined as when a full moon happens closer than 359,000 kilometres in its orbit.

Brian Rachford, associate professor of physics at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, said: "The red colour during a lunar eclipse is very distinctive and it's a rare treat to be able to see a blood red moon. During this phenomenon, the moon appear a little brighter and bigger than normal", he said.

The lunar eclipse already started when the Moon became visible at around 6:45 pm. However, it won't be a blue moon - those only happen once.in a blue moon.

The next total eclipse of the sun visible in the US will occur on April 8, 2024.

"And then the third thing is the "blood moon". However, you have noticed the satellite takes the picture reddish.

While on the other hand, the supermoons event is the one which occurs three to four times in a year.

It's giving us the spectacular display today, 31 January, and is visible at various times depending on whereabouts you are in the world. "If you go out and look at the moon every night if you can, you're gonna see a supermoon at least once a month", explains Don Stevens of the Perkins Observatory in Delaware.
