Lunar eclipse 31 January 2018

On Wednesday the 31st of January 2018, there will be a total eclipse of the Moon. This will also coincide with a Supermoon (moon at perigee) and a Blue Moon (second Full Moon in single calendar month)! Moreover the duration of this eclipse will be 5-hours and 17-minutes from start to finish (maximum eclipse just before midnight at 11:59:51 pm). Why is this one important I hear you ask? Well the last time a lunar eclipse coincided with a Supermoon and Blue Moon was about 150-years ago (1866).

When the Moon starts to move into the Earth's shadow this is called the penumbral part of the eclipse and it will commence at 9:21pm. The total eclipse phase begins at 11:21pm and will be at maximum eclipse at 11:59pm. The total eclipse will end at 12:37am, with the penumbral eclipse (when the Moon completely moves out of the Earth's shadow) ending at 2:38am.

A lunar eclipse is totally safe to watch naked eye and is caused when the Moon moves into the Earth's shadow. This results in some sunlight being refracted (bent) in the red part of the spectrum and will make the moon appear an orange colour to a blood red depending on atmospheric dust at the time. Australia is particularly well placed for what should be a visually stunning eclipse! So don't miss a great opportunity - get out there with your cameras! In addition, the Kaurna People of the Adelaide Plains call the Moon 'Kakirra', and when it is full it is called 'Kakirramunto'. Blood moons were often seen as portents of doom to many ancient cultures, before scientists were able to explain what was happening. All we need now are clear skies!

Thanks to Paul Curnow of the Adelaide Planetarium for this advice.
