A rare'super blue blood moon is set to appear in the skies over Australia

Moreover, it is going to be the first blue moon eclipse in 2018, and this is why many are calling it as "Super Blue Blood Moon". This is a rare assembly because the last time this happened was March 31, 1866, over 150 years ago. The lunar eclipse is referred to as a "blood moon" due to the fact that the moon takes on a reddish hue during a lunar eclipse as the moon passes into the Earth's shadow.

Doomsday prophets say that natural disaster is the one that rocked the Pacific last week, and the eclipse is the one from last August (the one Trump stared at directly). "It'll be a neat event to see so we'll keep our fingers crossed for clear weather", Jackson says.

You'll have to rise early Wednesday morning if you want to see it. Sleep in, and you'll miss it. You don't want to miss this lovely, rare sight.

The West Coast will have the best views of the lunar eclipse this time around.

The eclipse will last a little over three hours from the beginning of the partial phase at 3:48 a.m. Despite what you'll probably see float around on social media, the moon won't actually appear blue.

While the super and blue moon were interesting, it was the total lunar eclipse that had astronomers excited, Mr Todd said.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, Earth and Moon are aligned in syzygy - there's that word again - with the Earth in the middle and the Moon in the Earth's shadow and hidden from the Sun. A supermoon happens when Moon is closer to earth compared to other days. The farther west you live, the more of the eclipse you'll see. However, viewing conditions might be better for stargazers residing from Quebec City to Ottawa.

To get the full experience - albeit through a screen - both NASA and the Virtual Telescope Project are planning to stream the eclipse live.

There's one more piece that's appealing, if not convenient, of this limited, one-night-only engagement: Most anyone in Sonoma County will be able to see it all right from their backyard.

"This is what we often worry about in December and January is a large spring tide or king tide at the same time as we get a big storm coming through".
