Be sure to look up at the sky tonight because there'll be a rare phenomenon is called a lunar trifecta waiting for you.

Confused? We were too. According to the science guys, the trifecta will consist of three things; a blue moon, a super moon and a lunar eclipse - impressive.

Further research by space.com has revealed that tonight's sighting will be the first total eclipse of a blue moon in nearly 152 years.

If you'd like to witness said beauty, be sure to head outside between 6.03pm and 6.07pm today, January 31.

Unlike some solar occurrences, you will be able to see this one with your naked eye.

If you live in Burj Khalifa, you will be able to see the eclipse one minute before anyone else in the nation - you lucky things, you.

If you live or work in Fujairah (more specially the east coast), congratulations, you will have the best view of the sure to be stunning phenomenon. Peeps in Burj Khalifa, you will too. Relax.

If you want to ensure that you get a good view, make your way to the Al Thuraya Astronomy Centre in Dubai or the Sharjah Centre for Astronomy and Space Sciences. If you live in Abu Dhabi, head to the Al Sadeem Astronomy.

It's all happening at 6.03pm. See you then folks.

Also, if you forget, don't be alarmed by all the people staring up at the sky - it's not an alien invasion so, YOU DO NOT NEED TO PANIC. Unless and of course, you miss it.
