How rare it is?
It was last seen back in 1982 and next time it will occur in 2033. That’s a large period of time.
However, lunar eclipses are common but at maximum time, they fall at 3 to 4 am in the morning. But, this one is going to happen in prime time.
If you want to witness it, then it can be watched with naked unlike a solar eclipse. You can star at the sun but can look for as long as you want. Additionally, you can click photos.
It can be seen anywhere on earth, so pick up and choose your best location. But the important thing is, the sky should be clear and less light pollution.
It will be visible with naked eyes, but you can sport binoculars or a telescope after switching off the flood lights.
Some tips to take photographs:
Long exposure won’t help much because the relative speed of the moon and the earth is faster that you think.
Take snaps placing camera on tripod and steadying it. Don’t use programs, aperture or shutter priority automatically. Do all things manually to get the best shot. Slow shutter speed would be better but not a very slow one.
The preferntial speed of the shutter should be 1/5th or 1/8th of a second. High aperture of about f8 or f5.6 can be used, but will depend on the bloodiness or darker tint of the super blood moon 2015.
There should be no light source while taking photos. If you want to look like it bigger or to compare how big is this moon than other moons, then place a tree, a barn, a building or something like that. A tree will also work.
Then, get ready and shot a hell lot of photos. Later on, you can make a digital film of all those photos to play around with different exposures and camera settings to get the picture you want.
