    People in different corners of the Earth are experiencing a rare celestial phenomenon which is taking place for the first time in over 150 years.

    A rare combination of three lunar phenomena known as a ‘super blue blood moon’ – a blood moon (a phase of the lunar eclipse which makes the moon look red), a supermoon (a full moon or a new moon that happens when the moon reaches its closest point to Earth) and a blue moon (a second full moon in a calendar month) – occurred today on Wednesday, January 31.

    ​The last time all of these three phenomena coincided was in 1866.

    ​This incredible event has captivated the attention of people around the world, with countless stargazers turning their eyes to the sky to witness the kind of moon they haven’t yet witnessed in their lifetime.
