Astronomers have confirmed that the event shall start around 4:51 am PST near the Western Coast of the U.S. The darkest fragment of Earth's shadow created by the moon entering the umbra part shall happen at 4:08 a.m. EST.

Skywatchers will be treated to not only a supermoon, but a blue moon and total lunar eclipse, all in one night.

"The eclipse will take place during the middle of the night, and the Pacific Ocean will be turned toward the moon at the time", wrote skywatching columnist Joe Rao. As per reports, moon's lower half shall be visible brighter than the upper half. The second full moon that will appear on January 30 will be a supermoon and a blue moon, Pagasa said.

We kicked off the New Year with a "wolf full moon", named for the howled of wolves in winter. That would make this a lifetime spectacle considering it is a ' super blue blood moon'. 2018 will be special, however, with a second blue moon on March 31st of this year. That doesn't actually mean it will look any different - but rather that it's the second time there's been a full moon in a month. Supermoons occur when we get a full moon near or at the point when the moon's orbit is closest to Earth, also called the perigee of its orbit (the technical term for the event is really perigee-syzygy).

Dedicated stargazers say that it is the first time there has been a "super blue blood moon" for 150 years.

Noah Petro, a research scientist from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center said: "The lunar eclipse on January 31 will be visible during moonset".

The last supermoon occurred on December 3, when the moon was 222,761 miles (358,499km) from Earth.

Although the name has nothing to do with color, Pagasa said the moon may appear with a tinge of blue in certain atmospheric conditions such as when there are volcanic eruptions or when exceptionally large fires leave particles in the atmosphere. While the former consider the event as meaningless, the latter may provide some really interesting predictions about the future as the celestial events have a special meaning according to them.
