The rare happening is the result of two concurrent lunar phenomena: It’s the second full moon of the month (blue moon), and the moon will pass into the shadow of the Earth cast by the sun (total lunar eclipse). It’s been over 150 years since the last occurance.

The Blue Moon – second of two full moons in one calendar month – will pass through the Earth’s shadow on January 31, 2018, to give us a total lunar eclipse. Totality, when the moon will be entirely inside the Earth’s dark umbral shadow, will last a bit more than one-and-a-quarter hours.
