Your minute-to-minute guide to Wednesday's rare super blue blood moon

There will also be a blue moon, which occurs when you have two full moons in one month. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) estimate that the Moon will be nearly 14 percent brighter than usual.

If the weather cooperates, she suggests those hoping to see the whole ordeal should get to their viewing spot by 5:45 a.m.

The Central Time Zone will be able to view it the best.

Its a rare event, a super blue moon/blood moon, and a lunar eclipse all at the same time. Supermoons generally only occur once every 14 months and will not happen again until January 2019. It's easy to make a Moon Phases Calendar and Calculator that will keep all of the dates and times for the year's phases of the Moon at your fingertips. This results in the Moon gaining a larger than usual size that we can see from Earth.

The "super" comes into play since the full moon is at the closest point of its orbit to the Earth, or its perigee, Wednesday morning.

"The lunar eclipse is caused by the geometric lineup of the sun, earth, and moon".

Unlike the solar eclipse in 2017, the lunar eclipse requires no special glasses or equipment to view it. If you love Halloween, get your costume ready for 2020 because October 31, 2020 will be the next blue moon.

There's are few celestial events more handsome than a total solar eclipse or lunar eclipse but a "blood moon" follows closely behind. "In Tamil Nadu, the moon rising time is 6.04 pm and from that time we can witness this celestial event", he said. Temperatures will drop to the low 30s Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. The partial eclipse will end at 7:11 a.m.

As the moon will completely enter the earth's umbral shadow, it may look reddish, according to the Positional Astronomy Centre, India Meteorological Department. The earth's shadow creates the red hue, and you'll start the eclipse with a dark shadow on one side of the moon before it turns red.

Meanwhile, according to the Climate Data Processing Centre at PMD, the penumbral eclipse will begin at 15:51 PST, partial eclipse at 16:48, followed by total eclipse at 17:52 and the greatest eclipse at 18:31 PST. If you miss this one, the next total lunar eclipse visible in North America will be January 21, 2019.
