Super Blue Blood Moon

The Baltimore Sun

Sky watchers were treated to a rare trifecta early Wednesday, a super blue blood moon. The event is the combination of the moon being closest to the Earth in its elliptic orbit, the second full moon of the month and a total lunar eclipse. In Baltimore, the eclipse was only beginning when the moon set. On the west coast, those that woke up early got the full show. The next super blue blood moon will not happen again until 2037.
