Unlike a total solar eclipse, a total lunar eclipse will not damage your eyes. Those in the central and eastern portions of the country will only get to witness a partial eclipse because the moon will set before it occurs fully. The moon orbits around the Earth and as a result we see different amounts of the lit-up side. This is when the outer shadow of the Earth begins to touch the moon's face, according to timeanddate. The moon will be entirely inside the earth's dark umbral shadow and will last a bit more than one-and-a-quarter hours.
In Florida and for the rest of the East Coast, stargazers only will witness a partial eclipse. When the moon is closest to the earth, which is also known as its perigee point, it is called the Supermoon. The gas molecules of Earth's atmosphere scatter bluer wavelengths of light from the sun, while redder wavelengths pass straight through. While other colours in the spectrum are blocked and scattered by the atmosphere, red makes it through. This type of moon can sometimes be referred to as a blood moon, or even a snow moon as it is by some Native American tribes. But, remember, it is not a scientific term. He lives in Ottawa so he will see the moon moving into the shadow just as the moon sets. And we're just squeezing in this second full moon on January 31.
India will be seeing the rare lunar event after 36 years and stargazers are flocking to the Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences in Nanital, to watch the once in a lifetime event.

The January 31 full moon is special for three reasons: it's the third in a series of "supermoons", and about 14 percent brighter than usual. But we can not see much of the difference with the naked eye. "It will be unlikely for all three celestial events to converge again within the next century", Professor Boyd said.
People in western Canada, California, Alaska, Hawaii, Australia and parts of eastern Asia will - weather permitting - see a full lunar eclipse (the blood moon) that is also a supermoon (when the moon is at its closest point to the Earth) and, somewhat lyrically, a second full moon in one month (the storied "blue moon"). The interval varies for different regions. The last time it occurred was 152 years ago. The month of January will be having its second supermoon next week. The first happened on December 3, 2017, NASA said in a report. You may have also noticed that as it moves overhead, the size becomes smaller.
Readings like these help scientists understand which areas of the moon are scientifically significant.
