The moon will turn orange on January 31st to share the sight of a rare celestial spectacle!

Being the second full moon of the month, hence called Blue Moon, and the first eclipse in the new year, this will be quite a view.

The lunar event on January 31st will occur for the first time in 150 years, thereby giving sky-gazers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to view it.

The duration of the total phase is 77 minutes, with the moon tracking through the southern part of the Earth’s shadow.
