Super Blue Blood Moon: What makes it so special

Super moon

Just before 7 a.m. tomorrow head out your door and look to the north western horizon. 

You'll be able to see the lunar eclipse while it's still considered a super moon. 

What also makes it so special is it's the second full moon of the month which then categorizes it as a blue moon!

The lunar eclipse itself will cause a reddish hue to be cast on the moon caused by the bending of light through Earth's atmosphere. It won't be purple or blue but due to the fact it's so close to the horizon it will appear massive.

As an added bonus it's size will be nearly 14% larger than it normal because how close it will be to the earth. 

Overall having all three events happen at the same time hasn't happened in over 150 years! 

If you want to catch the full action of the "Super Blue Blood Moon" look outside at 6:51 AM and it should last until 7:18 AM once the moon-sets and the sunrise has lit up most of the sky.

Or if you've got some spare cash take a flight to the desert south west where they'll have the longest and most unobstructed view of the lunar event.
