For all you stargazers out there you might want to know that there is a super blue blood moon filling up the sky tonight.

This only happens once every 100 years!

The blue moon is the second moon in the same calendar month while the supermoon, which is the point when a new or full moon occurs at the same time as it is at or near its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.

This moon will be roughly 15% brighter than usual and much brighter.

Sadly it looks like we won’t be able to see it in Irish skies however, with only those in parts of the US, Middle East, Asia, Russia, Australia and New Zealand able to see it.

We do however have a lunar eclipse to look forward to in July.
