A Blue Moon is when two full moons happen in the same calendar month; lunar eclipses occur when the moon passes into Earth's shadow.
The term Supermoon refers to the occasion when a full moon coincides with the closest the moon gets to Earth during its orbit around our planet. The reason skywatchers enjoy them is because the moon appears slightly larger than normal compared to normal full moons. In this case, the Supermoon also happens to be the day of the lunar eclipse.
The third phenomena to occur on January 31st is a Blood Moon, nicknamed for the reddish hue cast on the moon. The term blood moon refers to a total lunar eclipse where a full moon lines up with the Earth and Sun. In this configuration the Earth blocks out the Sun's light, turning the moon from a white glowing orb to a deep red orb.
*While the initial event closes at 8pm, the actual eclipse is in very early morning, for those feeling called to see it, we will gather at the Stanford Oval from 4.30-6.00am, we might even linger and practice yoga to call in the light. "Californians will have a better view of the end of totality, as the penumbral eclipse will start at 2:51 a.m. local time, and the partial eclipse will begin at 3:48 a.m. At 4:51 a.m. local time, the total phase will start, ending at 5:29 a.m. Totality will end at 6:07 a.m., and the moon will emerge from the umbra at 7:11 a.m. The penumbral shadow will pass after the moon is just below the horizon." as quoted from space.com
