What happens when you mix a Blue Moon, Super Moon and Blood Moon?

When two full moons fall in a single month, the second is a Blue Moon. Here, we’re looking at the January 31 Blue Moon — which was also a Super Moon (meaning that it was closer to Earth than usual), and a Blood Moon (because it coincided with a total lunar eclipse). The next Super Blue Blood Moon will occur on January 31, 2037 — a mere 19 years away. Get those binoculars ready!
