There's been a lot of hype about the lunar eclipse coming on Wednesday morning. But there may be something else going on in the pre-dawn skies that is worth waking up early for.
Howard Hochhalter manages the Bishop Planetarium at Bradenton's South Florida Museum. And he loves teaching people about the stars and planets. He's calling this a "trifecta of lunar events." That is, a supermoon, (or a slightly larger moon), a blue moon (a second full moon in a calendar month), and a lunar eclipse, all rolled into one.
