And if you are a bit upset about missing the eclipse, you only have to wait a year (January 21, 2019) for our next total lunar eclipse, which also happens to be a supermoon!

How rare is the event? A blue moon occurs about every three years.

It appears we have entered an era of moon near-hysteria, with each month bringing about a rush of excited stories detailing the unique charms of whatever full moon is in the works at the time.

A Supermoon means the moon is closest to the earth in it's orbit.

So then what is a Blue Moon?

On January 31, Qatar residents will have a good chance to see the first Blue Moon in the year, the Qatar Calendar House said.

Here is how the eclipse will look across the world.                  NASA

"This January we had a full moon right on the first day of the month", said Klassen.

The "Super Blue Blood Moon" will be visible next Wednesday morning. That's known as a "blood moon". Since the moon needs to be behind the Earth, relative to the sun, a lunar eclipse can only happen on a full moon. Harvest Moon The Harvest Moon is the full moon closest in date to the autumnal equinox; it is usually the September full moon that takes the title of Harvest Moon.

"This just happens to be a full moon when the moon is at perigee - nearest earth - so it's Super", said Klassen. About 3% of all full moons are blue moons. In fact, you won't be able to see it anywhere in the United States due to the moon setting as the eclipse is beginning. They typically happen about once a month- every 29.5 days to be specific. That's where the blood part comes in with "blood moon". This color is created because Earth's atmosphere appears like a circular sunset sky around its entire periphery as seen from the moon. The Middle East, Asia, eastern Russia, Australia, and New Zealand can see it during moonrise. The sight will be from Wednesday evening to Thursday morning.

This free event will begin during eclipse partiality at 5:30 a.m. on the West Lawn of CSU's Lory Student Center.

This is still a pretty rare astronomical event! If you wake up after 7 a.m. you will miss it.
