Washington: Many parts of the globe on Wednesday caught a glimpse of ‘super blue blood moon’, a rare celestial triple treat.
A total lunar eclipse took place alongside a blue moon and a supermoon that made skywatchers excited for the epic moment.
The phenomenon began in India around 4:21 pm and lasted until 8:42 pm.
It was the first time in 35 years that a blue moon synced up with a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse.
NASA offered a free live feed of the ‘lunar trifecta’ on NASA TV and NASA.gov/live.
