India's Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft is scheduled to launch in March-that nation's first attempt at a landing mission, with a stationary lander and a rover created to last two weeks (one lunar day) on the surface.

January 31st 2018 is definitely going to be a very special night for the moon as a rare combination of three celestial events, occurring only once every 150 years is about to take place.

It's true. Blue moons are really non-events, other than being an unusual fluke of the calendar.

Unless you are a regular moon-watcher, you may not notice anything different about this full moon. This year, however, will see two occurrences of two full moons in a month, with the second blue moon occurring on 31 March. It features twelve of his best astro-photos and a day-by-day listing of cool celestial events that you and your family can enjoy watching all year. Supermoons occur when the full moon coincides with the "perigee" of the lunar orbit. This is a common term for the second full moon in a month. There has already been one full moon this month - the supermoon that was visible in the evening of the 1st and early morning of the 2nd. The moon will appear bigger and brighter in the sky.

The coolest thing to look for on January 31 will be the total lunar eclipse, when the moon lines up with the Earth and sun so that the sun's light, which normally shines off the moon, is blocked by our planet.

A "blue" moon has nothing to do with color.

"The moon will lose its brightness and take on an eerie, fainter-than-normal glow from the scant sunlight that makes its way through Earth's atmosphere", according to NASA.

The spectacular New Year's day supermoon has proved itself to be merely a warm up for the main event which will happen later in the month.

The total eclipse will be visible in the Northern Hemisphere, with totality visible from the western parts of North America to Eastern Asia. Those on MST, CST, and EST will be able to see the same at 4:48 a.m., 5:48 a.m., and 6:48 a.m. respectively.

The total eclipse will begin at 8.51pm and end at 10.08pm, while the partial eclipse will end at 11.11pm.
