Nicknames for full moons and when to see them

If you miss this one, set your alarm for the next blue moon total lunar eclipse, which will take place on December 31, 2028.

If you've got a good imagination, the best view would be from the moon, he says.

However, those who are disappointed should be over the moon on January 20, 2019, when Daytona will be in a prime position to see a super blood moon.

"The whole character of the moon changes when we observe with a thermal camera during an eclipse", said Paul Hayne of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado Boulder. For a lunar eclipse, it's the same idea: you still have shadows, but in this case, it's the Earth blocking off the sunlight for the moon.

"Expect to see what you see on a full moon day; in fact, on the 31st, the moon will be less bright than it usually is since there will be the earth's shadow on it".

The man, identified as Mr Rajesh Maru , was accompanying his elderly relative into the MRI room when the incident happened. Maru's brother-in-law, Harish Solanki (46), and three others were present at the hospital when the freak incident occurred.

There will be no need for a telescope, binoculars, or special glasses according to Clara Wente, professor in the Physics department at Front Range Community College. This happens because some light from the sun passes through earth's atmosphere and is bent towards the moon. But those in Mountain, Central and Eastern time will only get to view the beginning of the eclipse since the moon will begin dipping below the horizon before it's fully completed.

The last few months has been absolutely awesome for sky-watchers, with supermoons, a blood moon, and a blue moon. In fact, it should look considerably more orange than usual thanks to a total lunar eclipse. While viewers along the East Coast will see only the initial stages of the eclipse before moonset, those on British Columbia's west coast will see most or all of the lunar eclipse phases before dawn. The earth, sun and the moon are either closely or perfectly aligned, with the earth in the middle.

By 10.51pm the Earth's shadow will completely cover the moon, and the total eclipse will last until 12.07am before the partial eclipse ends at 1.11am.

If you live in North America, Alaska, or Hawaii, the eclipse will be visible before sunrise on January 31. It will also appear 30% brighter than when the moon is farthest from earth (or about 16% brighter than an average full moon).

Weather permitting, Omahans will see the first half of the total lunar eclipse.
