In India, the moon eclipse will start from 5.00 pm to 18.00 pm and will end on 8 o’clock at 41 minutes. This is the first full moon eclipse after 2015.

Can be seen without glasses
Solar radiation during the solar eclipse causes delicate tissue damage to the eyes, which can cause problems in seeing in the eyes. It is also called retinal sunburn. These troubles can happen for some time or even forever, but this does not happen during the lunar eclipse. There is no harm in seeing the moon with the naked eyes on this day.

What is the eclipse?
When the earth comes between the sun and the moon, then it prevents the sun’s rays falling on the moon and makes its shadow therein. This phenomenon is called Lunar Eclipse . It is also called blood moon.

Supermon and its importance
Supermon is a celestial phenomenon in which the moon is closest to the earth in its orbit and the entire moon can be clearly seen.
There will be three features of Purnima on January 31 –

Thirdly, this time there will be a full moon twice in a single month, such incidents usually occur two and a half years later. Super Blue Moon will pass through the shadows of earth and observers will see a complete lunar eclipse.
