The Express — A rare eclipse took place on Wednesday, January 31 combining three lunar phenomena: a supermoon, a blue moon and a blood moon.
The entire passage took more than three hours, during which the moon turned a coppery red as sunlight going through Earth’s atmosphere bounced off its surface.
NASA confirmed the moon is orbiting 223,068 miles from Earth, rather than the usual 238,855 miles, making it appear up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter in the night sky.
