Celestial trifecta: Super Blue Blood Moon coming Wednesday

- This coming week there's an incredibly rare event on the astronomical calendar.

It's called a "Super Blue Blood Moon."

Early Wednesday morning there will be a total lunar eclipse and we'll have the best view here on the west coast.

It begins at 3:48 a.m. and totality will start at 4:51 a.m.

The moon will have a reddish-tint, which is called a “blood moon,” and will be as close as it ever gets to earth -- a supermoon -- making it 14 percent brighter than usual. It’s also the second full moon during a single month – which is called a “blue moon.”

All three. One morning.
