NEW DELHI: Avid sky-gazers are all geared up to witness today’s rare celestial triple treat. Here’s what’s will happen, simultaneously:

A Supermoon – The Moon is at/near its closest point to Earth

A Blue Moon – The 2nd full moon in a month

A Blood Moon – A total lunar eclipse, which will give the moon a reddish hue. The red tint is caused by the Earth’s shadow on the Moon during a lunar eclipse

Here’s all you need to know about the event:

* This super blue blood moon will begin today around 4:21 pm and last until 8:42 pm (all Indian Standard Time).

* It will be visible across the country.

* Northeastern India will be the first to witness the lunar eclipse, between 4.21pm and 5.18pm .

* The rest of the country can see this Super Blue Blood Moon between 5.18pm and 6.21pm.

* Those on the west coast and a few parts of Rajasthan will be able to see it between 6.21pm and 7.37pm.

Super blue blood moon

* The phenomenon can be observed with the naked eye.

* Binoculars or a telescope will enhance the viewing experience.

* You can safely eat and drink during this phenomenon.

* In urban areas, get away from the city lights and focus on the moon.

* Rural areas with little or no artificial lights and pollution will have the clearest skies and the best viewing conditions for a lunar eclipse.

* The moon will appear 14% closer to the earth and 30% brighter.

* India will be witnessing the Blood Moon after nearly 36 years -the last one was in 1982.

The overlap of a blue moon – the second full moon in a calendar month – with a lunar eclipse while the moon is at its closest approach to the earth is the first such celestial trifecta since 1982, said Noah Petro, a research scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center outside Washington.

“Just having these three things simultaneously occur is unusual,” Petro said. “A blue moon is not extremely rare but it’s a nice coincidence that it happens in conjunction with these other two.”
