A total lunar eclipse will occur early on the morning of Wednesday, January 31. It's been given a variety of names, including "blue blood supermoon eclipse" and "super blue blood moon." Those titles are almost as intense as Die Hard with a Vengeance, but this eclipse has earned it. That's because the circumstances of this total lunar eclipse are extraordinarily rare. (NASA's Bill Ingalls offered tips on how to photograph the lunar eclipse.)
January's lunar eclipse will land on the night of a supermoon, making it about as large and bright as a lunar eclipse can be. (At least, when seen with the naked eye.) It is also the third in a line of three consecutive supermoons.
It may have more titles than Daenerys Targaryen because there's still more to it. It's the second full moon of the month, which is popularly called a blue moon. By itself, a blue moon is less rare than the phrase "once in a blue moon" might have you believe. The phrase may be a more apt description of all these things happening simultaneously. This will be the first time there's been a "super blue blood moon eclipse" in more than 150 years, according to Space.com.
