In case you didn’t know, there is going to be a rare astronomical event happening on January 31: a super blue blood moon.

More From FemaleNetwork.com

A blue moon is the second full moon occurring in a month. A supermoon happens when the moon appears bigger due to its closer proximity to the earth. Lastly, a blood moon is what you’d scientifically call a total lunar eclipse.

Yes, all of that is happening in one night.

If you’re interested in experiencing it as most astronomers do, the Philippine Astronomical Society, together with numerous astronomy groups and observation stations, is inviting everyone to a Free Telescope Viewing of this once-in-a-lifetime event.
