Those who love watching the sky at night can view early Wednesday what’s being called a “Super Blue Blood Moon”. A super moon occurs when the moon is at its closest point to the Earth. A blue moon happens when two full moons take place in the same month. A blood moon is a total lunar eclipse that fashions a shade of red.
The eclipse will begin when the moon is low in the western sky, at about 5:48 a.m. Wednesday. It will reach totality by 6:51. You won’t be able to see the eclipse end due to the moon setting at about 7:15.
The last time all three events happened on the same date was more than 150 years ago in 1866.
