🌕 Rare Blue Blood Moon

January 31 @ 2:51 am - 6:55 am

It’s been 150 years since the last “Blue Blood Moon.”  On the morning of January 31 we will be treated to quite a rare event – a total lunar eclipse.

The last combination of rare events in the sky was on March 31, 1866.  A Blue Moon occurs when you have two full moons in the same month) we had a full moon on January 1).  A “blood moon” is the shade the moon turns during the lunar eclipse – hence “Blue Blood Moon.”

The lunar eclipse starts at 2:51 am,  so set your alarms on January 30. The maximum view of totality is at 5:29 am, with the eclipse ending at 6:55 am.
