Sedona is an incredible spot to watch the first Super Blue Blood Moon since 1866
Don’t miss this rare and spectacular astronomical feast as stated by Newsweek Magazine. On January 31st early in the morning the moon will become a super moon, blue moon and blood moon (lunar eclipse) all at once.
We researched what this all means and found out that this total lunar eclipse is fully visible in Sedona AZ. The total lunar eclipse is sometimes called a blood moon, as the Moon turns redThe sun, Earth and moon will line up in such a way that our planet cuts off the moon’s sunlight supply. It will drift into the Earth’s shadow and begin to glow a warm, orange-red as light passes through the Earth’s atmosphere.
What does Blue Moon mean? This is when there is a second full moon in a calendar month. Sadly it doesn’t actually shine blue, but it is an interesting quirk.
Jan 31st is the last time we will see the supermoon this year. This is when the moon’s closest approach coincides with a full moon and it can look bigger and brighter. Newsweek magazine article states “To witness the supersize space rock in all its glory, look to the skies just after sunset. The lower the moon sits in the sky, the larger it appears because of something called the “moon illusion.” (Sarah Noble thanks for the great explanation and facts)
