The super blue blood moon is getting ready to rise.
On Jan. 31, the full moon will pass through the Earth’s shadow in a total lunar eclipse, turning a color somewhere between ochre and orange. This is the second full moon of the month, so it’s a blue moon. It’s also a supermoon and so will appear bigger and brighter in the sky than usual.
Thus: super blue blood moon (which really needs to be the title of a “Supernatural” episode or at least a new Sisters of Mercy single).
This trifecta of events is noteworthy because it hasn’t happened in 150 years. But Miami and the rest of South Florida may not get much of a show.
According to NASA, viewing the super blue blood moon is going to be problematic all up and down the eastern United States. But you can watch a live feed on NASA TV and on NASA.gov/live or follow the eclipse on @NASAMoon.
Or better yet, you can actually DO something. Even with a lousy view, South Florida is determined to make the most of the super blue blood moon by taking advantage of all its mysterious vibes. There are group meditations and yoga sessions and even an ocean kayaking adventure.
