Super Blue Blood Moon

The moon put on a rare cosmic show early Wednesday morning.
It was the first time in 35 years, a blue moon has synced up with a super moon and a total lunar eclipse. If you missed it this morning, News 25 was able to capture some of the rare event on our Scarlet Pearl Tower Cam.
These events then created what is called a super blue blood moon. The super blue moon passed through Earth’s shadow to give viewers in the right location a total lunar eclipse.
While the moon was in the Earth’s shadow, it took on a reddish tint which is why it is known as a blood moon.
Another blue moon is slated to happen again in March, but the trifecta of a super blue blood moon will not happen for another 19 years.
