The same applies for two new moons.
Weather permitting, Omahans will see the first half of the total lunar eclipse. "The darker part of Earth's shadow will begin to blanket part of the Moon with a reddish tint at 6:48 a.m. EST, but the Moon will set less than a half-hour later". So, most of the time the moon ends up a little above or below the path Earth follows as it revolves around the sun. "The eclipse begins at 5.51am ET, as the moon is about to set in the western sky, and the sky is getting lighter in the east". A total lunar eclipse is dramatic, as the earth's shadow (umbra) completely covers the moon. This phenomenon happens once every 29.5 days when the lunar cycle is ending and the Moon is opposing the Sun. Such an important astronomical event is taking place after 150 years.
There are usually a couple of lunar eclipses each year so if you do miss it this time around, the next one will happen on July 27 - though it won't be visible in North America.
But, this is not your average blood moon. But, remember, it is not a scientific term. The point when the moon is closest to the earth is called Perigee and the point when it is farthest from it is called Apogee.
During the total eclipse, the moon, the second full moon of January, will have a reddish hue because of the way the atmosphere manipulates light.

It's an event almost 175 years in the making. 2019, but that one won't be a blue moon. The interval varies for different regions. Unlike solar eclipses, a lunar eclipse is not unsafe to watch and the eclipse may last for hours and be seen in many parts of the world. The first happened on December 3, 2017, NASA said in a report. The moon doesn't change color, so please don't write letters to the editor venting your disappointment.
