Early risers enjoy lunar trifecta

A large, full moon slipped behind the earth’s shadow overnight Wednesday. The result: A super blue blood moon.

It’s a super moon because the moon is close to earth in its orbit and appears larger than normal.

It is a blue moon because it is January’s second full moon of the month.

And during a lunar eclipse, the moon can appear blood red.

The lunar show will continue through 7:11 a.m. today.
