It was a super moon because it turned full at the closest point to Earth in its orbit, known as perigee, appearing slightly bigger and about 14 percent brighter than normal. It was a blue moon because it is the second full moon occurring within the same month. And, most importantly, it was a blood moon because it passed through the Earth’s shadow in a lunar eclipse, which gave the moon a red hue. 2-1-18
We have a rare magical Blue Moon coming on the 31st! There will be a total lunar eclipse on the night of the Full Blue Moon as well as it being a Super Blood Moon! Is that not incredible? The last time all three events lined up this perfectly was more than 150 years ago. The last time humans saw a total eclipse of a blue moon was 31 March 1866. We began the New Year with a Full Moon and we are going to end it on the 31st with a Full Moon.
