"The reason why the times are so precise is that it is defined by the moment the moon is directly opposite the sun in its orbit", Fred says.

The supermoon occurs when the moon is closest to Earth and reaches its perigee and this month end the moon will reach its extreme pedigree of 3.56 lakh kilometre (approximately 221,559 miles). The word soon became popular and some astronomy experts have even tried establishing distance parameters (usually between 222,000 to 223,000 miles) but the word has no scientific value.

"That said, with the super blue blood moon lunar eclipse in the prideful sign of expressive Leo, you could very likely have a light shining on your own true colors, and that will surely have a positive effect, because this awareness can only lead to growth". Remember, during totality, the sky will darken and the moon will appear suspended against the countless stars.

"It is a rare three-in-one moon with supermoon, blue moon and the lunar eclipse on this Jan 31 after a gap of 150 years".

The 15-year-old made her Grand Slam debut by competing in the Open via a wildcard entry in the qualifying rounds. No. 10 Pablo Carreno Busta had a 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 win over No. 23 Gilles Muller.

Astronomical experts claim that the so-called blue moon, the term used when a calendar month has two full moons, on January 31 is a rare occurrence.

Both combined make it a super blue blood moon. The Moon on January 30 will appear slightly larger in size, however it will not be completely full so it's not a true supermoon. Plus, the seasons are much more accurately defined astronomically than the months, so it begs the question whether this definition is truly astronomical, though it will likely be thought of as such.

A blood moon occurs when it takes on a reddish tint as it passes through earth's shadow in a lunar eclipse. Some people have read religious meaning into this sequence, seeing the tetrad as some sort of prophecy.

The planetarium will be providing telescopes as well as briefing on the phenomenon, astro-photography activities as well as performing lunar eclipse prayers. It marks the last episode of the supermoon trilogy where the very first occurred in the month of December previous year. The next will be in 2032-2033. So it's not just a lunar eclipse, or a blue moon, or a supermoon.
