Tonight, Channel islanders will hopefully be able to see Super Blue Moon and, depending on when the showers clear, the moon rises around 5pm, but you might ave to wait a couple of hours to see it at its best!

So, what does Super Blue moon mean to us?

A moon that is bigger and brighter than normal due to its orbit
The second full moon this month (the first was on January 2nd)

In addition - and the first time since 1866 - a supermoon, blue moon, and total lunar eclipse will coincide. Sadly we wont see the lunar eclipse, but people from Moscow, via Sydney, to Washington DC will see a super blue blood moon.

The "blood part" (the red tint to the moon) is when the earth’s shadow casts on the moon during a lunar eclipse - the last time this happened was 152 years ago.

And the next time? Well, you'll have to wait until 2037 to see a super blue blood moon again!
