The last lunar eclipse took place in September 2015, but not of the supermoon variety which happened in 1866 allegedly. For some parts of Asia, including India, the eclipse will already be under way as the moon rises. During eclipses, the moon will get a dark reddish color like rust, as our planet's satellite will enter the Earth's shadow, which will interfere between the Sun and the Moon. On America's East Coast the eclipse will start coming into view at 5:51 a.m. and will give viewers in cities like NY only a small window to see the reddish moon. As skywatchers witness Supermoon, Blue Moon and a Total Lunar Eclipse all at the same time, the phenomenon called "Super Blue Blood Moon" occurs.
The total phase of the eclipse - for those who can see it - will be 77 minutes.
According to NASA, the spectacle will be viewable "from western North America across the pacific to Eastern Asia".
In order to see the moon most clearly, stargazers should opt to travel outside of city limits; light pollution from the city lights obscures the view.
2018 will be a year of blue moons, as another one is due to appear on March 31. For those in the Eastern Time zone, that means the partial eclipse begins at 6:48 a.m., while people in the middle of the country can catch the total eclipse beginning at 6:52 am Central Time.
