The Super Blue Blood Moon
On January 31, NYC will get a chance to spot a rare Super Blue Blood Moon. A total lunar eclipse will sync up with a blue moon (second full moon in a calendar month) and a supermoon (that's when the full is closer in orbit, and appears as much as 14 percent brighter than usual). Join our park rangers at Rockaway Beach on Sunday, January 28 to learn all about what you can expect to see.
