You have a chance to see a 'Super Blue Moon'

You have a chance to see a very rare celestial treat on Wednesday, January 31 — the ‘super blue blood moon’.

This rare sight combines three events at the same time: a blue moon, a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse! Despite the name, a blue moon isn’t actually blue. It refers to the second full moon appearing in a calendar month. According to, the upcoming eclipse will be the “first total eclipse of a Blue Moon in nearly 152 years.” Although the total eclipse will only last for a few minutes, the supermoon will last the whole night and can be seen after 6pm, weather permitting.
