The inhabitants of the Earth in the next day will be able to see three rare astronomical phenomena at once

This night in the sky, the inhabitants of the Earth will be able to observe three rare astronomical phenomena at once: a super moon, a crimson lunar eclipse, and a full moon.

A supermoon happens when the apparent size of the Moon becomes maximum. Today, our satellite was in perigee — at the minimum distance from the Earth: 360 thousand kilometers.

This phenomenon can be seen if there are no clouds in the sky at night.

The May super moon is often called “flower” or crimson and the moon is often called “blood.”

A crimson eclipse occurs as the Earth almost completely covers the Moon when they line up with the Sun. All three phenomena coincide once every 12 years.
