Local photographers click the first super moon of the year

Posted January 05, 2018

Below, we provide a timetable for the main stages of the moon's passage through the Earth's shadow for six time zones - one for Hawaii (HST), one for Alaska (AKST) and four across the U.S and Canada: Pacific (PST), Mountain (MST), Central (CST) and Eastern (EST).

The first eclipse will occur on January 31 and will be particularly visible from eastern Europe and eastern Africa to South America.

That total eclipse will combine with the second full moon of the month (also known as a blue moon), which hasn't happened in the past 150 years.

According to NASA, a blue moon happens every two-and-a-half years.

During the emotional press conference, one attendee spoke up to say: "I was the coach of that young man". Police Chief John Tedesco says he has "never seen savagery like this" in 42 years in law enforcement.

How unusual are Blue Moon eclipses?

A supermoon takes place when a full moon is at or near its closest point to Earth in its orbit.

SOMERSET skygazers were treated to "the biggest and brightest" supermoon of the year as it rose across the United Kingdom on New Year's Day. About four weeks prior to the occurrence of the supermoon, a "cold moon" supermoon rose in the evening on December 3.

What is a blue moon?

Firstly, the moon will be full for the second time in this month.

No one has a right to raise the hand against someone, at least not the Congress culture. The meeting is being held at the Rajiv Bhawan, the party's headquarters in Shimla .

For people in areas where it will be visible, the moon will look red as a result of all of the world's sun events reflecting off its surface; the appearance that netted it the nickname, blood moon. It won't be visible from anywhere on the continental USA but Alaska and Hawaii will see a partial view.

Mr Petro said: "The supermoons are a great opportunity for people to start looking at the moon, not just that once but every chance they have!"

Unless you are a regular moon-watcher, you may not notice anything different about this full moon. Some call it a super blue blood moon eclipse.

Does The Library Of Congress Save Every Tweet? Not Anymore - Here's Why
In the meantime, the LOC still hasn't decided how best to provide the public with access to all the tweets it now has. The Library of Congress is going to start being more selective about which tweets it decides to save in its archives.

The phrase "once in a blue moon" - meaning something that does not happen very often - impresses how infrequent this event is.
