Turn around bright eyes– take a look at the moon!

Different parts of the world caught a glimpse of a total lunar eclipse, and see the so-called ‘super blue blood moon’ on January 31, 2018. The moon appears to look extra large as a result of three unusual events happening: a blue moon, a super moon, and a total eclipse. The sun, the Earth, and moon lined up perfectly just as the moon was near its closest orbit point to Earth. This type of lunar event hasn’t happened since 1866.
