Stages of the super blue blood moon, as depicted by NASA. No equipment is necessary and it does not harm the eye like the solar eclipse. The Moon will appear over Qatar sky at 5:17 PM and will stay till next morning at 6:50 AM Doha local time. Then, light that has traveled 93 million miles from the sun is refracted through a thin layer of air (if the Earth were a basketball, the atmosphere would only be the thickness of a few sheets of paper). Sandeep Kataria, JAP-SRF, Indian Institute of Astro Physics, Bengaluru, said, "You must have heard the phrase "once in blue moon" which means something that happens rarely".

So on January 31, the world will be treated to a perigee blue moon total lunar eclipse. In the article, he misinterpreted the definition of the blue moon as an extra full moon in a calendar month. Though the moon whirls around Earth at an average distance of almost 239,000 miles, it doesn't orbit in a flawless circle. "It is an ellipse with one side (perigee) about 50,000 km closer to Earth than the other (apogee)". Think of it as moon "wobble" that results in the moon getting even closer and giving us a really big super moon. It will also be orbiting closer to Earth than it normally does and will shine about 14 percent brighter than normal, hence the term "super moon". As moon doesn't have its own light, it reflects sun's light. This color change occurs because the Earth's atmosphere acts like a prism and splits the sunlight into its constituent colors - the amount that the atmosphere bends the red light causes it to illuminate the moon. The visibility of all three at once will vary, but you'll be able to see at least one or two of the events with the knowledge that all three are occurring for the first time in 150 years.
But the January 31 alignment of lunar phenomena doesn't stop there. Kataria said some people still follow it.
