Super Blue Blood Moon
Wednesday January 31 we'll have a Super Blue Blood Moon to view. Basically we can expect a brighter and larger full moon compared to average as the moon will be at its closest point to Earth within its orbit. It's called a blue moon because this will be the second full moon within one month and a blood moon because a lunar eclipse will cast a "reddish" shadow onto the moon. Here in the Twin Tiers we can expect a partial lunar eclipse which will last from 6:48 a.m. until 7:19 a.m., which is when the moon will set in the western sky.
