If you are a star-gazer or a lover of the moon, tonight is a very special night indeed…never mind the saying ‘once in a blue moon’, well this is ‘once in a super blue blood moon’ and that really is quite something!
On Jan. 31, a total lunar eclipse will occur with a blue moon, this is known as a ‘Super Blue Blood Moon’.
NO ONE HAS SET EYES ON THIS IN 150 YEARS!
The last Blue Moon occurred in July 2015 and in 2018, we’ll experience two of them, a phenomena that won’t happen for another 19 years. The second Blue Moon is to occur in late March.
The Blood Moon occurs because the Earth is passing between the Moon and the Sun, which gives the Moon a reddish tint to it. It’s caused by light bending around the Earth because of gravity passing around a portion of the atmosphere, more commonly known as a lunar eclipse.
A Blue Moon combined with a Supermoon (when the Moon is at its closest point to Earth and appears to be 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than normal) the rare phenomena is called a Super Blue Blood Moon happens. Supermoons generally only occur once every 14 months and will not happen again until January 2019.
The last time all of these events occurred simultaneously in the Western hemisphere was 1866.
According to some spiritualists, the energy of this rare super blue blood moon, will reveal the inner you and access your true potential…are you ready for that?
We shall be watching and taking photos, would love to see yours too!
