by on Dec.31, 2017, under Lunar Eclipse

A total lunar eclipse will take place on January 31, 2018.

The January 31 lunar eclipse takes place during the third of a supermoon triple. A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that approximately coincides with the closest distance that the Moon reaches to Earth in its elliptic orbit, resulting in a larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.

January 31, 2018 eclipse is also the second full moon of the month, the first having taken place on January 1. This makes it a blue moon.
