Rare super blue moon visible tonight
The month of August will wrap up with a super blue moon Wednesday night.
NASA says a blue moon doesn’t refer to its color, but to any month when two full moons occur within the 29.5-day lunar cycle.
They typically appear slightly larger and brighter than an ordinary full moon.
Only 3% of full moons are considered blue moons and another won’t be seen until January 2037.
The super blue moon will likely be visible after 6:30 p.m. and will appear full until around Friday morning.
