    Default A total lunar eclipse, a blue moon and a supermoon will happen simultaneously Wednesday.

    A total lunar eclipse, a blue moon and a supermoon will happen simultaneously Wednesday.

    None of these celestial events is rare in and of itself — but it is unusual for them to happen together, said Shannon Schmoll, director of the Abrams Planetarium at Michigan State University.

    There was a blue moon total lunar eclipse on Dec. 30, 1982 — but it was not a supermoon, according to Krista Testin of the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s physics department.

    “The last time a super blue moon eclipse occurred in the US was 152 years ago,” she said.

    As a supermoon, the moon will appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter because it will be at its perigee, or closest point to Earth, Testin said.

    It will also be the second full moon this month, called a blue moon, referring to its rarity. However, the moon will look reddish-orange during the total lunar eclipse, Testin said.

    “I’m calling it the purple eclipse because it combines the blue moon and a red eclipse,” Rich Talcott, a senior editor at Astronomy magazine, told The Independent.

    Stargazers in the western US and Canada, across the Pacific Ocean, most of Australia and China, and northern polar regions can catch the celestial spectacular, paper reported.

    Early risers in other locations can tune in to webcasts on NASA’s lunar Twitter account, Space.com and the website for the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. The Slooh online telescope will also broadcast the eclipse.

    The moon will be at its fullest at 8:27 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, according to the report. The lunar eclipse will begin at 6:48 a.m. and peak at 8:29 a.m.

    Hmmm, Interesting timing with what's happening politically. Trump to give "State of the Union" address that day.

    and all of this will happen while I go under surgery; people bleed the most during a full moon let alone a monumental eclipse; please keep me in your positive thoughts and prayers- I'll need them

    Ya know,,,,it was unusually warm outside today, an unseasonable 57 degrees for our high, might even be a record...Oh god, it sure 'feels' like earthquake weather. Let's hope not!
