There was a rare supermoon, blue blood moon and lunar eclipse this morning (PHOTOS)


If you happened to be looking at the sky this morning around 3:00am, you would’ve noticed something incredible…

The early morning skies of January 31st were graced with an extremely rare cosmic occurrence: a full moon, super moon, blue blood moon and total lunar eclipse, all happening at the same time!

This particular moon mash-up hasn’t taken place for over 150 years. On top of being astrologically significant, it was an absolutely gorgeous sight. Check out our favourite photos below.
