There will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a super Blue Blood Moon on Wednesday (January 31).
A super moon is when the satellite is at its closest distance to Earth.
When a calendar month sees two full moons, which is an unusual occurrence, the second one is known as a Blue Moon.
Finally, a Blood Moon when it turns red or copper, usually during a total lunar eclipse.
To mark the rare event — last seen more than 150 years ago — the Philippine Astronomical Society has posted a list of observation stations open to the public on its Facebook page.
