Red and Blue moon plus elclipse

Am hoping to get some photos of this while on the road. I believe its 31st January. Not sure about the eclipse. Anyone got any info on this event. Last time was in 1866 or thereabouts I believe.

Peter some info here.. long time since last Supermoon ,Red and Blue Moons in same calendar month.
https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/australia/sydney

Also
Supermoons are full moons, and some new moons. Any full moon or new moon coming closer than 361,554.9 km of Earth counts as a supermoon in 2018, the closest perigee is 356,564 km and the farthest apogee lies 406,464 km distant.

Thanks guys. It'll be difficult to image. The eclipse looks like being just on the zenith.

Peter,

Zenith? Sounds like you're in South East Asia. Have fun and forget astronomy, there'll be another eclipse in July.

Ahhh! Yes. Right. I misread my own info. The full eclipse will be at a good elevation for viewing. Thanks for making me look again.
