SUPER BLUE BLOOD MOON happens on Wednesday
'SUPER BLUE BLOOD MOON' WILL COMBINE THREE LUNAR EVENTS:
Three lunar events will be happening at once on Wednesday, Jan. 31st. A blue moon, a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse all at the same time.
That hasn't happened since 1982, and won't happen again until 2037.
A blue moon in the second full moon in a month. A supermoon is a particularly close full or new moon, which appears brighter and bigger. A total lunar eclipse is when the moon is completely covered in the Earth's shadow, and is also called a blood moon because it gives the moon a reddish tinge. Put all three together, and it's being called a super blue blood moon.
For us in Edmonton, The eclipse will be visible best before the moon sets early Wednesday morning.
