Community Events January 31, 2018 / Arusha Vaidya 06:00 PM to 06:00 AM on the 31st January 2018 to 1st February 2018 Say goodbye to your month-end woes because there is something really special occuring this month-end! After a period of 152 years, there is going to be a Blue Super Moon & Total Lunar Eclipse !What is it and why is it so special ?When there are two full moon occuring in the same calendar month, the second full moon of the month is known as a BLUE MOON. Hence, the phrase ‘once in a blue moon’ !A SUPER MOON is when the moon is when the full moon coincides with its closest point to Earth during its monthly orbit. That causes the moon to appear much bigger and brighter in our sky than usual, and it’s referred to as a supermoon – or more technically, a perigee moon.TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE :The Earth is always projecting a huge shadow into space, but the moon only sometimes passes through it. That can only happen during a full moon, when the Earth is aligned between the sun and moon.Unlike during a total solar eclipse, lunar totality lasts for about 40 minutes, during which time the moon is closest to the center of the Earth’s shadow. “Often cast in a reddish hue because of the way the atmosphere bends the light, totally eclipsed Moons are sometimes called ‘BLOOD MOONS.’”The 31st of this month is going to be remarkable because all of these 3 phenomena are going to coincide !
