Watch ‘super blue blood moon’ and lunar eclipse in Bangladesh sky
If you miss it tonight, you will have to wait for another 35 years to get the chance to see it.
In Bangladesh sky, the entire lunar event – also named “super blue blood moon” -- started at 4:49pm and ended at 10:09pm.
It will be a thrilling experience for Bangladeshis to watch this lunar trifecta -- super moon, blue moon and lunar eclipse.
“This eclipse will be visible in Bangladesh if the sky remains clear,” the Met Office in Dhaka says in a report adding that people in Dhaka, Mymensingh, Chittagong, Sylhet, Khulna, Barisal, Rajshahi and Rangpur will be able to see it.
NASA plans to provide a live stream of the moon from telescopes in California and Arizona, beginning at 5:30am EST.
“This full moon is special for three reasons: it’s the third in a series of “supermoons,” when the Moon is closer to Earth in its orbit -- known as perigee -- and about 14 percent brighter than usual. It’s also the second full moon of the month, commonly known as a “blue moon.” The super blue moon will pass through Earth’s shadow to give viewers in the right location a total lunar eclipse. While the Moon is in the Earth’s shadow it will take on a reddish tint, known as a “blood moon,” NASA said on its website on January 18.
