Did you catch the Super Blue Blood Moon this morning? While prime viewing was from 1:51 – 7:08 a.m. AKST, Alaskans can still catch a bigger, brighter moon for the next few days.
The second full moon of the month is known as a blue moon. It’s special because it came during a total lunar eclipse, known as a blood moon. Moreover, it all happened as the moon’s closest approach to Earth made it appear larger than usual, known as a supermoon.
For the first time in 150+ years the three combined for a Super Blue Blood Moon.
