Rare Event January 31st
A super blue blood moon will rise in the sky on January 31, 2018. A Supermoon occurs when the moon reaches peak fullness during its closest approach to Earth in a single orbit. As the satellite draws nearer, the moon can appear up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal, according to Space.com.
The next part — the blue moon — happens much less frequently, as the adage implies. A blue moon occurs when two full moons happen within the same calendar month. Since the moon has its own "month" — called a lunation — that lasts 29.5 days, these events take place about once every two and a half years, NASA explains. In this case, the first full moon rises on January 1, making the second full moon on January 31 a blue moon.
Blood moons are a much creepier way to describe total lunar eclipses, which turn the astronomical body a vibrant crimson. As the Earth aligns perfectly between the sun and the moon, our planet's shadow blocks the sun's light. The atmosphere then bends the light in a way that creates a cool visual effect.
"We're seeing all of the Earth's sunrises and sunsets at that moment reflected from the surface of the Moon," explains Sarah Noble, a Program Scientist at NASA.
We are in for quite a ride when it comes to making life decisions and choosing to let go of beliefs that no longer serve us. Take care of yourself emotionally and don't forget to breathe.
