The “super moon”, “blue moon”, and “blood moon”, which usually happen during a total lunar eclipse, will roll into one “Super Blue Blood Moon” on Wednesday night, the first of its kind in 152 years.

It is not that rare for a “super moon” or “blue moon” or “blood moon” appears solely, but it is rarely seen that these three astronomical phenomena appear alongside. It only happened five times in the 20th century, and last time the phenomenon happened was Mar 31, 1866.
