This NASA chart by eclipse expert Fred Espenak details the visibility range and times for the January 31, 218 total lunar eclipse, which also occurs during a blue moon and near a supermoon.

Unlike the other two bits of the stunning lunar night, this part will only be visible to some parts of the world, since it depends on the alignment of the moon, sun and the Earth.

On January 31, we'll get the third supermoon in a row, which will also be the second full moon of January and coincide with a total lunar eclipse. But it will be 31 January that will be the most dramatic and unusual of all, and the one that Nasa is advising people to make sure they catch.

SOMERSET skygazers were treated to "the biggest and brightest" supermoon of the year as it rose across the United Kingdom on New Year's Day.

Some people including Nasa are referring to it as a super blue blood moon, and whatever you call it, it will make for a handsome, odd night.

Tunisia suspends Emirates Airlines over security measures targetting women
In Tunisia, anger has been building after women said they had been banned at Tunis airport from boarding Emirates flights to Dubai.

According to SCS, the astrological event will begin at 7.48pm and end at 11.11pm in Singapore. Aside from that, a total lunar eclipse will also occur that night. The "blood moon" is named for this color.

The moon orbits around Earth in what is called an ellipse, keeping an average distance from Earth of about 238,000 miles. They occur when the moon is in extremely close proximity to earth's orbit, and therefore appear much larger. Secondly, the moon will be a supermoon.

On January 31, it will happen in the middle of the night, when the Pacific Ocean faces the moon.

After this year, the next time that a Blue Moon passes through Earth's umbra will be on December 31, 2028, and, after that, on January 31, 2037. "But it's another great chance to watch the moon". That happens just under every three years. And January's blue moon will be followed by another blue moon in late March.

NASA said: "The moon will lose its brightness and take on an eerie, fainter-than-normal glow from the scant sunlight that makes its way through Earth's atmosphere".
