Super blue blood moon puts on a show around the world

A super blood blue moon is seen during an eclipse behind an elephant statue at a temple in Bangkok, Thailand, on January 31, 2018. The western USA should had good viewing, too, along with Russian Federation.

According to Nasa, it's a sight which won't be seen in the country again until January 31 2037.

Wednesday's moon will be the second closest of 2018 after the one on January 1.

The handsome sight watched the convergence of three rare events coming together - supermoon, blue moon and total lunar eclipse - which happened for the first time in 150 years.

According to NASA, the moon will be 223,068 miles from the Earth tonight, nearly 15,000 miles closer than average. "It's just loading up the plate with all the wonderful things the moon can show us". "The oxygen atoms scatter the white sunlight and they sorta've emphasize the blue and red component, so its goes and bounces off the moon". The first supermoon of 2018 took place on New Year's Day and was previously described by NASA as the "biggest and brightest" one expected for the entire year.

A "blood moon" occurs during a lunar eclipse when the sun, moon, and Earth are in alignment.
