It's the first time in 35 years a blue moon has synced up with a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse. NASA is calling it a lunar trifecta: the first super blue blood moon since 1982.

Today's total Lunar Eclipse is a combination of three celestial events: Bloodmoon, Bluemoon and Supermoon. It is called Bluemoon when the full moon occurs twice in a calendar month. And as during tonight's lunar eclipse the moon reached near its perigree it looked larger than an average fullmoon and hence termed as a Supermoon.
