Sound Smarter At Work: First Blue Moon Eclipse In 150 Years This Month
Remember last year's craziness with the solar eclipse? Let's go back further, remember back in 2004 when everyone was wilding out about the "blood moon"? Well get ready to keep your eyes to the sky for the "blue" moon later on this month!
Well, it won't actually be "blue" but the first eclipse of 2018 will be on January 31, and this will be the first time in 150 years, that this total lunar eclipse will happen during the second full moon of the month, mostly known as the "blue moon" according to Space.com.
Now for us, here in Texas, we're going to have to get up pretty early in the morning to catch it. Most of the good stuff will be seen in the middle of the night and over the Pacific Ocean but we can get our first glimpse at a partial eclipse at 5:48 AM with the Total Eclipse beginning at 6:51 AM after that, the sun will be up and we won't see anything.
So remember when you're getting up early to head to work on Jan. 31st to take a quick look up into the sky and to see something you probably won't get to see again in your lifetime.
