But a Super Blue Red Moon total lunar eclipse isn't a bad attempt.
On Wednesday, all in one day although not all at the same time, the moon will be full, super, "red," "blue" and totally eclipsed.
It's almost as if the astronomy gods are saying, "Hey, we're packing a lot into the last day of January and taking February off," but the phenomenon is really due to February's fewer number of days and a full moon rising just on the cusp of the month's start.
Like all sciences, astronomy is ever-changing, Maurer said, citing an old joke in which a student asks, "Hey, aren't these the same questions that were on last year's test?"
Since hype began early last year for the Aug. 21, 2017 solar eclipse, interest in astronomy has been growing, well, "astronomically," he said.
