A super blue blood moon is coming, and although that may sound like the apocalypse or a bad superhero name, it’s actually way more interesting.

Happening every three years, a blue moon is when there are two full moons in a month. A blood moon is when the earth is positioned between the moon and the sun, which gives the moon a red tint. A supermoon is when the moon is closest to earth and occurs every 14 months. However, on Wednesday, all three will be happening at once.

A super blue blood moon hasn’t occurred in North America since 1866, so this event occurs “once in a blue moon.” Eager sky-watchers must be sure to get out of bed early; although Florida won’t be able to see everything, what we can see happens early in the morning.

People living on the east coast can see the “blue” and the “super” part of the moon all night long, but the blood moon won’t occur until 6:40 am when the moon is already starting to set. If you plan on seeing the moon, make sure to wake up early, find a high place and hope for the best.

While Floridians may not get the full effect of the moon, the event is still set to be amazing. In astrological terms, a full moon represents truth coming to the surface, as the moon is at its most powerful. Lunar eclipses, aka a blood moon, are meant to reveal what is hidden about you, and monumental changes come about. Don’t worry, your life won’t suddenly turn upside down, but maybe try to just pay attention to what happens around you.

The super blue blood moon is a once in a lifetime event, with three lunar events happening at once. Although I usually complain about having to wake up before 8 a.m., I’ll make an exception to watch this from my window.
