The celestial coincidence hasn't happened in more than 150 years. The institute also said the colour of the moon depends on the nature and quantity of the dust particles, water droplets and aerosols present in the earth's atmosphere during the time.
"Because then we're going to see that whole entire eclipse, providing it's clear then", Nichols says. "On average, that corresponds to once every 265 years!" For those of us in the Northeast, it will be a partial eclipse visible in the early morning hours of January 31. However when the moon the furthest away from the earth it is out there, 252,000 miles. "We will have telescope sessions, where people can look at planets and their moons if time permits", said Prof Ravinder Banyal of IIA. While the moon is in the Earth's shadow it will take on a reddish tint, known as a "blood moon".
During a lunar eclipse, there is a sun-Earth-moon alignment. The eclipse will be visible before sunrise on January 31 for those in North America, Alaska and Hawaii.
