You probably noticed everyone talking about the super-rare Super Blood Moon today.
And if you were staring at your phone screen or laptop, you probably saw #SuperBloodMoon trending worldwide on Twitter and Facebook all d*** day.
If you weren’t aware, it’s a rare combination of a “supermoon” and a lunar eclipse. A “supermoon” is when the full moon is at perigee, or the closest point of the moon’s orbit with Earth.
This has only happened five times since 1900 – the last being in 1982. You won’t see one again until 2033.
