From this item: Skywatchers will want to mark January 31 on their calendars—the day will feature what EarthSky.org is calling a "super Blue Moon eclipse." In other words, a supermoon, a blue moon, and a lunar eclipse will be happening simultaneously. NASA, meanwhile, uses the term "Super Blue Blood Moon" in its headline because of the reddish tint the moon will have that morning. Whatever the term, those on the West Coast of the US will get the best show, notes USA Today. For them, the eclipse will be total, while East Coasters will see a partial one.
