The say what now?! I know right, we hadn’t heard of it either! So just what is the elusive  Supermoon, or Super Blue Blood Moon to be precise, other than something that sounds like a super cool band? Read on to find out more.

Okay, okay, so back to the Super Blue Blood Moon! We’re pretty excited as this natural phenomenon is the first of it’s kind in approx. 150 YEARS! The name is taken from three separate events, with the “blue” representing the second full moon in a month, the “super” referencing the moon being at its closest point to Earth on its orbit and the “blood” relating to the colour caused by the Earth’s shadow during a total lunar eclipse.

A “Supermoon” is on average 14% brighter than our normal moon, so you can expect a much brighter evening ahead. Having started on Tuesday night, the “Supermoon” will be active until the hours of Thursday morning, the 1st of February. Apparently for us in the UK we lose the Blood bit, so our view will be a little less red than some of the rest of the world.

Apparently, the best time to view the phenomenon is 00:40am – we’d say it’s worth waiting up for, wouldn’t you? If you want to check out Nasa’s Livestream, you can do  so here:

  1. Wow, thanks for the info Casa Lola, I didn’t know about the “blue” bit. I was flying home last night next to a super bright moon,felt so mystical. I tried to take photos with my phone, within it’s gorgeous CL phone case, but they really didn’t capture just how glorious it looked to the naked eye xxx
