Rare 'Super Blue Blood Moon' leaves millions awestruck in India

Rare 'Super Blue Blood Moon' leaves millions awestruck in India

Canon Ambassador and landscape photographer, David Noton, has shared his best advice for learning how to photograph the "Super Blue Blood Moon".

The moon was also seen setting over the Empire State building. The total lunar eclipse is given the "blood" nickname because of the "beautiful" red color caused by the projection of all of the Earth's sunrises and sunsets onto its surface, Petro said.

During a lunar eclipse, the moon appears to take on a reddish hue, so next January's eclipse will also be the next "blood" moon. It was the third in a series of supermoons, when the moon is closer in its orbit to Earth and is about 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than usual. North America, Asia, the Pacific, and Oceania got to see it. It won't be a blue moon, but it will be a supermoon.

This is the first time the United Kingdom has experienced a blue moon lunar eclipse in 150 years.

It was easier to see in the Central time zone because the moon will be higher in the sky when the eclipse begins.

Two research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and fifteen have issued a buy rating to the stock. Monarch Prns Asset Ltd Co invested 1.46% of its portfolio in Portland General Electric Company (NYSE:POR).

"It's a attractive place", said Paula Wallace, who came out to see the eclipse.

If that doesn't excite you, then maybe the fact that NASA is calling it a "Super Blue Blood Moon" will.

Most of the East Coast, Europe, South America and Africa however, were not able to spot the cosmic show. The first full moon of the month occured on Jan 1.

A blue moon refers to when there is a second full moon in a calendar month.

The 2018 New Year started with the first full moon of the year. The penumbra, or lighter part of the Earth's shadow, touched the moon at 4:51 a.m. Wednesday and by about 6:15 a.m. the shadow was clearly noticeable and reddish. The total solar eclipse that swept across the U.S.in August contributed to today's buzz, he noted.

That means the only light that's reaching the moon from the sun is light that's coming through the atmosphere of the Earth. For all of our troubles and all of our concerns, the grandeur of a lunar eclipse provides reassurance that the universe will continue to turn as it has for billions of years.
