PISCATAWAY, NJ — The moon, the sun and our planet put on a rare celestial show very early this morning, when most people were still asleep.
It was the first time in 35 years a blue moon, which is what they call the second full moon in a month, has synced up with both a supermoon and a lunar eclipse.
Those in the western part of the continental US saw this rare cosmic show between 4:50 AM Pacific Time until about 6 AM.
The U.S. East Coast, Europe and most of South America and Africa only got to see the super blue moon.
And if you missed seeing the “super blue blood moon” live this morning, don’t worry. This combination will happen again in the year 2037.
