How To See The Super Blue Blood Moon Wednesday
It hasn't happened in 35 years, and it won't happen again for another 19 -- a rare trifecta of events creating a "Super Blue Blood Moon" will be viewable on Wednesday.
According to IFLScience, "it’s a Moon that’s closest to Earth in its orbit (a “supermoon”), and it’s a rare second full Moon of the month (a “blue” moon). Additionally, thanks to the fact that during a total eclipse only red-yellow light gets through our atmosphere to the lunar surface, it’ll look a little coppery-red too (a “blood” moon)."
If the skies aren't clear enough to get a good look at it, NASA plans to offer a livestream of the moon beginning at 5:30 a.m. ET. You can view the stream here.
