A rare lunar occurrence is set to be enjoyed by most of the world as eyes will turn to the skies when our moon becomes a Super Blue Blood Moon - for the first time in 150 years.
"So we got a blue moon, we've got a total lunar eclipse which some people refer to as a blood moon, and then we also have it being a supermoon as well".
The next eclipse visible from western Kentucky will be a total lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019.

Images of the first rare supermoon of 2018 Tue, January 2, 2018 The first full moon of the year named after wolves is the second of a series of three "Supermoons" - dubbed the "Supermoon trilogy". Although it does not have a scientific definition, a "blood moon" occurs during a lunar eclipse when faint red sunbeams peek out around the edges of the moon, giving it a reddish, copper color.
The super blue blood moon is the result of a trifecta of celestial events.

This is when the moon is closest to the centre of the shadow.
During a total lunar eclipse, the moon passes through the darkest part of the Earth's shadow.
Unlike solar eclipses, a lunar eclipse is not risky to watch and the eclipse may last for hours and be seen in many parts of the world. The earlier you're out, the better the view.
Supermoons will occur when the moon is less than 360,000 kilometres away from the Earth and no specific equipment is required to see this phenomenon. "The overall eclipse ends at 12.08 midnight on Feb 1", he explained.
Though the exact moment of this full moon is 8:37 a.m. ET Jan. 31, the moon will appear plenty full for a day or two before and after that. Since the total eclipse happens right at moonset, it may be hard for people in western Kentucky to see it.
"The temperatures on the surface, and how they change, tell us a lot about how fluffy or compacted the soil is on the surface of the moon", Elphic said. It will be visible before sunrise on 31 January from western North America, and because of the worldwide date line, after sunset on 31 January from central and eastern Asia, Indonesia, New Zealand and most of Australia.
