La Luna Sangre or Super Blue Blood Moon to be visible in Thailand tonight

Blue moon, super moon and blood moon rolled into one as Super Blue Blood Moon will all occur simultaneously in 2018 for the first time since 1866.

If weather permits, a rare celestial treat will be visible in Thailand this evening as three lunar phenomena or the Super Blue Blood Moon will coincide. A blue moon (a second full moon in a calendar month), a super moon (when the moon is unusually close to Earth, making it bigger and brighter) and a blood moon (a moment during an eclipse when the moon appears red) will all coincide for the first time after 152 years.

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.”

Lunar eclipses can be visible from everywhere on the night side of the Earth, if the sky is clear. From some places, the entire eclipse will be visible, while in other areas the Moon will rise or set during the eclipse.

Check out the timeline lifted from timeanddate.com of the total lunar eclipse tonight if you’re in Bangkok.
