Super blue blood-Moon 2018: When, where and how to see it this month
Fox News

January skywatchers are in for a rare treat: a Blue Moon, a total lunar eclipse and a supermoon all in the same month.

A Blue Moon is when two full moons happen in the same calendar month; lunar eclipses occur when the moon passes into Earth's shadow; and supermoons happen when the moon's perigee — its closest approach to Earth in a single orbit — coincides with a full moon. In this case, the supermoon also happens to be the day of the lunar eclipse.

The first full moon of January will take place on the night of Jan. 1 or the morning of Jan. 2, depending on your location. The second full moon and the lunar eclipse will occur on the night of Jan. 31 or the morning of Feb. 1. And the supermoon will take place on the night of Jan. 30, which is technically one day before the moon reaches peak fullness, but even NASA is willing to call the event a supermoon nonetheless.

Fox News ~ Blue Easter Moon

Post by Tryphosa on Tue Apr 03 2018, 10:26

Interesting few facts from Fox News on the recent Blue Moon.
-------
http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/03/31/easter-s-blue-moon-is-message-from-heavens.html

Easter’s blue moon is a message from the heavens

During the days leading up to Easter, the most sacred day in Christianity, the heavens have been presenting a stunning light show.

We are able to see five planets with the naked eye: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. And Saturday night – just hours before Easter sunrise services – we are being treated to a blue moon.
