Super Blue Blood Moon Can Be Seen In Central MN Wednesday
Have you ever heard the phrase, "it only happens once in a blue moon?" Well, tomorrow morning you'll be able to see the Super Blue Blood Moon from your own backyard! It hasn't happened in 150 years. If you miss this opportunity you'll have to wait a pretty long time to see it again.
A blue moon means it's the second full moon in a month--which is pretty rare. It's a super moon because it'll look HUGE, due in part because it's closer to the Earth than it normally is. The blood moon part comes from the fact that it'll turn red for about an hour as the sun gets blocked by the moon.
What time should you set your alarm clocks? Well, it'll be happening around 6:30 a.m. local time. If you sleep in until 7 a.m. you'll probably have missed it. Kind of cool, right?
