'Super Blue Blood Moon' Visible In India, Millions Watch Across The World

'Super Blue Blood Moon' Visible In India, Millions Watch Across The World”

"Calling it a blood moon is rather exaggerated; only after large volcanic eruptions would we expect a rusty red colour, which will not be the case this time".

You may have seen a so-called Supermoon before, but what makes this one a "blue moon", is the fact that it's the second full moon in a month.

The lunar eclipse already started when the Moon became visible at around 6:45 pm.

So this super blue moon will also be a blood moon, because it coincides with a lunar eclipse!

Most significantly, the moon passed through the shadow of the Earth.

The phenomenon is a convergence of three lunar events - a supermoon, a blue moon and a blood moon.

A supermoon is an occurrence where the moon is at or near its closest point in its orbit to the Earth when the full moon happens, making it look 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than average full moons, NASA said. However, you have noticed the satellite takes the picture reddish.

Sydneysiders missed out on spotting the moon due to overcast skies, but people in Perth were able get a clear view of the stunning sight.

NASA is calling it a lunar trifecta: the first of its kind since 1982. In the US, the last time when these events are occurring on the same day was 150 years ago in March 1866.

For North America, the last time was in 1866.

Built on the company's brand philosophy, the "Moon" TVC was created with the view of communicating the brand tagline "Connecting Aspirations" to all. After this time the moon will be free from the shadow of Earth and the totality will remain on it for about 1 hour and 16 minutes.
