Super Blue Blood Moon

Have you ever heard of a ‘Super Blue Blood Moon”?!
They are pretty rare and the last one happened around 150 years ago. It is when not one, but three events happen with the moon.
Firstly, “Super-moons” happen when a full Moon is closest to the Earth, appearing bigger and brighter than normal.
They are called ‘super’ because they are 15 percent brighter and 30 percent bigger than regular full moons!
Secondly, a “Blue Moon” is what you call the second full moon in one month. So the supermoon expected on January 31st will also be the second full Moon of that month, which means it’s a Blue Moon. They happen every two and a half years, on average.
Thirdly, a “Blood Moon” is the name given for a view of the Moon during a total lunar eclipse. Because of the way light passes through the Earth’s atmosphere during an eclipse, red light from the Sun is reflected onto it. The Moon’s reddish colour earns it the nickname… Blood Moon.
But will need to wake up at around 2am to see it!

Oh xd we’d have to wait quite a few years again for it to appear once again, unless of course it happens somehow. Still it’ll be quite unlikely.
