Super ‘Bipolar’ Blue Blood Moon
An ominous event occurred today on the eve of a special luna celestial day. I’ve been battling another bout of depression. It’s been a few months, the kick in the gut came January 2nd, and for last 4 weeks, it was beyond my reach to pull myself out.
Almost as if them Full Moons is playing head games, but as I woke up today–the eve of a Blue Moon–my depression was gone. I was able to get up and go walking and I’ve had a very motivated day.
I feel it. Is that odd?…I feel a connection to the moon. No, not that I will howl at it and go all werewolf (Awooooo). Not even close, but I feel the Moon messing with my mood. I wonder if it’s just me?
The moon-mood connection maybe a debunked notion for many outsiders. Ya, I get it that scientists show the moon can’t influence the water in my body. I get there are no real correlations between the moon phases and any of my psychological problems.
Still, I know my body, I know my moods. What do I conclude when I feel up or hypomanic or have an elevated mood more often when there is a Full Moon?
Whatever the case, this is a rare Blue Moon and Blood Moon mixer.
On January 31, there will be a Super Blue Blood Moon, That a blue moon – full moon twice in one month. And a SuperMoon Lunar eclipse.
On January 31, according to eclipse experts, the event marks the first time anyone on Earth has seen this celestial trifecta in 35 years—and the first time it’s been seen in the Americas in 150 years.
Where Can You See The Super Blue Blood Moon?
Part of the US will miss it or get a small vantage point. The best view is to watch it live with NASA.
Beginning at 5:30 a.m. EST on Jan. 31, a live feed of the Moon will be offered on NASA TV and NASA.gov/live. You can also follow at @NASAMoon.Weather permitting, the NASA TV broadcast will feature views from the varying vantage points of telescopes at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California; Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles; and the University of Arizona’s Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter Observatory.
- Super Moon is “when the sun, moon, and earth are aligned at the full moon or the new moon, and the moon most nearly approaches the perigee of its elliptical orbit.“
- Perigee–syzygy is the technical term in astronomy for a Supermoon. (perigee=full moon AND syzygy=straight-line)
- The last time there was a Rare ‘Super Blue Blood Moon’ was 35 Years ago.
