Very early this morning something incredibly rare took place in the night sky. For the first time in over 150 years it was a Super Blue Blood Moon.
Why is it called a #SuperBlueBloodMoon?— NASA (@NASA) January 31, 2018
🌕Supermoon – When the Moon is at or near its closest point to Earth
🔵Blue Moon – The second full moon in a month
🔴Blood Moon – The red tint Earth’s shadow casts on the Moon during a lunar eclipse
