The last time a total lunar eclipse coincided with a blue moon was on December 30, 1982, and it will not take place again until January 31, 2037. One, it's the third in a series of "supermoons" when the Moon is closer to earth in its orbit, known as perigee.
Here's how it breaks down.
It's being called a blue moon total lunar eclipse because it's happening during a blue moon - or the second full moon of a month.
#3 A total lunar eclipse occurs when earth comes exactly between the sun and the moon and the earth's shadow falls on the moon.
The total eclipse will be visible from the western United States and Canada across the Pacific Ocean to most of Australia and China, as well as northern Polar Regions. "The super blue moon will pass through Earth's shadow and take on a reddish tint, known as a blood moon", Nasa said.
Earth's shadow begins to cross the upper left of the full moon January 31, 2018, as it sets in the west behind the East Point Lighthouse in Cumberland County, N.J. Plus, this will be a total lunar eclipse, more dramatic than the usual partial eclipse.
