Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse

Blue Moon

Wed 31 JanWed 31 Jan 2018

What is a Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse?

Whilst it's not actually going to be blue, it will appear to be a slightly bigger and brighter Full Moon than usual.

It gets it's name from a combination of being a Blue Moon - the second full moon of a month and a Super Moon -  when the moon is closest to the Earth.

In some parts of the world it'll also be a Blood Moon which occurs during the lunar eclipse.

That combination of all three makes it a Super Blue Blood Moon.
