You better go to bed early tonight and get some sleep because the lunar trifecta is happening early Wednesday morning.
It’s a Blue Moon because it’s the second full moon in the same month. It’s a super moon because the moon will be the closest to Earth in its orbit. AND….it’s a Lunar Eclipse all at the same time!
Alaska has a great view of this event. But, you are going to get up early to see it. Here’s the schedule (in Alaska Time)
Penumbral eclipse 1:51 a.m. The “penumbral” eclipse is a partial shadow that crosses the moon first.
Partial eclipse begins 2:48 a.m.
Total eclipse begins 3:51 a.m.
Maximum eclipse 4:29 a.m.
Total eclipse ends 5:07 a.m.
Partial eclipse ends 6:11 a.m.
