1st December Moon

Keep your eyes on the sky early Wednesday morning for a rare celestial event. If the skies are clear, people in the Miami Valley be able to see a so-called “super blue blood moon.”

It’s the first time this type of moon has been visible in more than three decades.

Learn more about the moon at NPR News.

Joe Childers is an astronomy educator with the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery’s astronomy wing and planetarium.

"Look in the northwest Wednesday morning from 20 minutes until 7 a.m. until 20 minutes until 8 a.m. to see a partial lunar eclipse of the moon, where, as it sets it will get skinnier and skinnier, until it’s 85 percent gone when it sets,” he says.

The eclipse will be most visible Wednesday in the western half of the United States and Canada.

The next such lunar event won't occur again until 2037.
