Media Alert: Rare ‘Super Blue Blood Moon’ Coming—First in 35 Years, Spokesperson Available

The cosmic trifecta of a supermoon, a blue moon, and a total lunar eclipse hasn’t been seen anywhere on Earth since December 1982.

Ahead of the cosmic three-for-one deal on January 31st, National Geographic has published a sky-watchers’ guide that will help readers find the best viewing locations and learn what actually makes the moon turn red. This Wednesday, there will be a super-size full moon as well as a total lunar eclipse and because of the position of the moon, it will take on a slightly reddish tone — more commonly referred to as a ‘blood moon.’

According to eclipse experts, the event marks the first time anyone on Earth has seen this celestial trifecta in 35 years — and the first time it’s been seen in the Americas in 150 years.
