WE CAN’T think better way to say good riddance to boring old January than to gaze up at the super blue moon that will be visible over Clare skies tonight.
What is a super blue moon we hear you ask?
Well, let us break it down for you.
A blue moon occurs when there are two full moons within a calendar month (proving that January does in fact go on forever).
A super blue moon happens when the moon is at its closest point to earth, making it bigger and about 14 per cent brighter than normal.
A super blue blood moon will be visible over Australia, Asia and parts of the USA, but alas it will not be visible in Ireland.
The next lunar eclipse will be visible in July.
But with the season of love almost upon us, it’s still worth grabbing a blanket, a hot beverage and your significant other and taking in the romantic view.
The super blue moon will be visible from about 5pm this evening until 8am tomorrow morning.
