Take that away and you've got a super blood moon, which is a total lunar eclipse that happens at "perigee syzygy".

With the "blood moon" part of the eclipse, Brian Murphy, director of Indiana's Holcomb Observatory & Planetarium and Butler University professor said although the moon is in Earth's shadow, some sunlight still reaches the moon.

In recent years, a number of blood moons have captured global attention, causing some to speculate about a possible connection to prophecy and the End Times.

So far, it looks like the weather New England will be experiencing will impact visibility of the eclipse in the region. The eclipse will not be visible to people in India and other Asian countries.
