What does a Super Blue Blood Moon Mean?
Coincidently, for the first time in history, Pakistanis will be able to see a supermoon, a blue moon, and a lunar eclipse or “blood moon’.
As eerie as it may sound, there won’t be any blood and it won’t be blue.
Get ready for a lunar trifecta on Jan. 31
1⃣ The Moon will be full, near its closest point to Earth
2⃣ A lunar eclipse will be visible in parts of North America, Asia, & Oceania
3⃣ It will be the 2nd full Moon this month

A blue moon is a term for the second full moon in a single calendar month. The supermoon coincided with a total lunar eclipse, making the supermoon take on a red glow and it will transform into a blood moon.
It was visible in large parts of US, northeastern Europe, Russia, Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Pacific, and Australia.
On Jan. 31, 3 lunar events will come together in an unusual overlap that’s being called a super blue blood moon. See how this celestial rarity will help @NASAMoon scientists observe what happens when the lunar surface cools quickly during a lunar eclipse: https://t.co/5keRakwhUk pic.twitter.com/x9jhb5foVY
