Super Blue Blood Moon (Total Lunar Eclipse) - Free Event, Australia, Wednesday, 31. January 2018

The GDC Observatory in conjunction with Astronomy Education Services will host a free, community event to observe the Total Lunar Eclipse on 31st January, 2018 at Yokine Reserve, Perth WA .

This will be the second Full Moon for January (aka A Blue Moon), plus the Moon will be at a close approach to Earth in its orbit (aka A Super Moon) and the Moon will move into the shadow of Earth causing it to turn a Coppery/ Orange colour (aka A Blood Moon).

This means we'll observe a;

"Super Blue Blood Moon!"

There will be telescopes, a large screen broadcasting an image of the Moon as it enters "Totality" and talks/ lectures throughout the night. Don't forget to bring your phone so we can snap an uber-cool image of the eclipsed Moon for you!

Not to be missed, come along and join in the Lunacy!
