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.
For the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, the eclipse will already be underway as the Moon rises. The combination of a supermoon and lunar eclipse will result in a visually striking moon that is the largest we see in orbit, so you should make sure to step outside at night on the 31st - just do not forget to wear a jacket! The best views of the middle-of-the-night eclipse will be in central and eastern Asia, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia, although Alaska and Hawaii will get a glimpse, too. Moonset will intervene for the rest of North and Central America, however.
A super moon, like the one visible on New Year's Day, is the term for when a full moon is closest to the Earth in its orbit, appearing bigger and brighter than normal. The same day as the blue moon, viewers shall also experience a lunar eclipse visible in the night sky.
This event has been dubbed as "Wolf Moon" by NASA. This usually happens about every 2.7 years, though because February has only 28 days, a number of regions will get another blue moon in March 2018. They occur when the moon is in extremely close proximity to earth's orbit, and therefore appear much larger. Monday, our lunar companion reaches an extreme perigee distance of 221,559 miles. To answer that question, we consulted the reference book Canon of Lunar Eclipses, 1500 B.C. - A.D.

Scientifically, Simpson said, the event is pretty meaningless. Some call it a super blue blood moon eclipse. That stunning event will lead to the moon turning a deep, rich red, a sight that has led to it being christened the "blood moon".
