According to the NASA.gov website, “the Jan. 31 full moon is special for three reasons:
- It’s the third in a series of ‘supermoons,’ when the Moon is closer to Earth in its orbit…and about 14 percent brighter than usual.
- It’s also the second full moon of the month, commonly known as a ‘blue moon.’
- The super blue moon will pass through Earth’s shadow to give viewers in the right location a total lunar eclipse. While the Moon is in the Earth’s shadow it will take on a reddish tint, known as a ‘blood moon.’”
