這個星期有個千載難逢的奇景~~ 藍月、血月和超級月亮 3 種天體現象，將睽違 152 年再次合體呈現在世人眼前。南加州可以看得到喔！如果你能等到凌晨四點還不睡，將是最好的觀賞時刻，除了親身到 Griffith Observatory 與其他天文迷一起觀看，不想起床的你也可以安坐家中看網路直播喔！
這場月食秀維持時間長達 77 分鐘，美西時間自下半夜凌晨 4 點 51 分左右開始，印尼、紐西蘭、澳洲、太平洋、加拿大西北部、夏威夷等地是最佳觀賞地點，美東地區則看到月偏食。
If you can stay up as late as 4am, you can see it from Griffith Observatory, or watch it live on the internet.

Did you know… An Eclipse Never Comes Alone!
A solar eclipse always occurs about two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse.
Usually, there are two eclipses in a row, but other times, there are three during the same eclipse season.
This is the first eclipse this season.
Second eclipse this season: February 15, 2018 — Partial Solar Eclipse
