The last time we had Super Blue Blood Moon (supermoon, blood moon, and blue moon occurring simultaneously) was 152 years ago, on 31 March 1866, so it's probably worth a look.

"It's the third in a series of "supermoons, ' when the moon is closer to the Earth in its orbit - known as perigee - and about 14 percent brighter than usual".

Here's how it breaks down.

The "Super Blue Blood Moon" is seen in a live image from NASA about 6 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018. As the second full moon of the month, this moon is also commonly known as a blue moon, though it will not be blue in appearance.

The U.S. East Coast, Europe and most of South America and Africa are out of luck for the total eclipse, but the Tri-State area can see a partial eclipse.

The Earth's atmosphere will filter out nearly all of the visible light, which is all the colors of the rainbow, except for orange and red, which is why the moon will appear reddish-orange.

Visakhapatnam and the rest of the world are all set to witness not only a blue moon and a super moon, but also a total lunar eclipse, all rolled into one great celestial event.

He said, "Having a super moon, blue moon, blood moon at the same time I haven't found any records of it or any kind of calculation of when it is going to happen again".

"About 7:30 a.m., the sun will start to come up, so your best viewing for this will be about 6:30 a.m.to 7 a.m.", said Hluchan. During a lunar eclipse, the atmosphere distorts the sunlight and red light is refracted, which then hits the moon and gives it its red colour.

Unusually, the first two phenomena will coincide with a lunar eclipse.

The "penultimate" eclipse begins Wednesday morning at 2:51 a.m. but it is not until about 4:51 a.m. that the total eclipse phase begins, and lasts until 5:29 a.m. Finally, the blood moon, which is marked by the reddish tint caused by the eclipse.
