Recently world had seen a blue moon and a supermoon along with total lunar eclipse, rolled into one. After 20 years i.e. since 1982 this triple line up came into existence and in future it will occur in 2037. The moon visibility has stretched from western half of the U.S. and Canada the moon rose on from Wednesday night into Thursday early in the morning across the Pacific into Asia.
The shine of the moon will not spread over the U.S. East Coast and the moon was set up just as the eclipse got started. Other parts Earth like Europe and most of Africa and South America had missed the show too. This month, blue moon is the second full moon and a supermoon was a particularly close full or new moon, appeared somewhat brighter and bigger. A total lunar eclipse or blood moon is known for its reddish tinge which was expressed as the moon completely bathed in Earth’s shadow.
The scientist this lunar research Noah Petro from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Centre in Greenbelt, Maryland said that he is calling it the Super bowl of moon while others preferred it super blue blood moon. Consider it either way and according to researcher guaranty it had impressed the whole system in the clear skies. That was the time when moon was closest to Earth with a distance of just over 223,000 mile i.e. 359,000 kilometres and Jan 01 the distance was 1,500 mile only.
The eclipse on Wednesday was much farther than earlier one and the distance was 223,820 mile but still there were unofficial supermoon guidelines. An eclipse represented a valid chance to impress people and made them look at the moon which created a serious impact but the supermoon was considered less serious and scientific than it. The lunar scientist disliked this no-reorganization of lunar and he definitely wanted to advocate these moons.
Throwing away this opportunity will not be good as this one time opportunity for people to see the beauty of nature and admire it and soon had passed. The scientists had made the preparation beforehand that when the sun will line up perfectly with the Earth and then moon for the eclipse, they will make an observation from telescope in Hawaii and that they did. Further information was collected from NASA’s moon circling Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, launched in 2009.
