Get ready for the first ‘super blue blood moon eclipse’ in more than 150 years. Sky gazers will be treated to a rare convergence of celestial events on January 31— a blue moon, a supermoon, and a total lunar eclipse, all in one. The phenomenon, which hasn’t happened since 1866, graces the sky when the second full moon of the month (known as a blue moon) is in its closest position to Earth, making it appear even larger than usual—a supermoon. Many have begun calling the combination a “super blue blood moon eclipse.” The seldom-seen event will be visible in western North America, Asia, Australia, and elsewhere across the Eastern Hemisphere.
