Students Learn Outside of the Classroom Experiencing a ‘Super Moon, Blue Moon, and Total Lunar Eclipse’


A rare trio moment appeared in the sky Wednesday morning. A super moon – a blue moon – and a total lunar eclipse all in one!

It was a moment in time that won’t be seen again for years to come. Students opted out of class to experience this unique phenomenon, something that can’t be seen in the classroom.

For one, the experience was more than just seeing the moon change color; it was the first time this exchange student from Southeast Asia stepped foot inside of a planetarium.

The rare combo hasn’t been seen in North America in more than 150 years; so getting a front row seat at the local museum was magical. Over 60 people were inside of the planetarium Wednesday morning.

The next super blue blood moon combination won’t happen again until 2037.
