The moon put on a rare cosmic show yesterday. It was the first time in many years a blue moon has synced up with a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse.
The triple cosmic whammy all fell on the same night yesterday for the first time since March 31, 1866. The phenomena could be seen in Myanmar at moonrise last night.
A blue moon is the second full moon in a calendar month. A super moon is when the moon is unusually close to Earth, making it bigger and brighter, and a blood moon is the moment during an eclipse when the moon appears red.
The rare treat was best visible from Australia, Asia and parts of Russia. It was not visible from western Europe, Africa or South America.
