Aaron Perlman sings about 'super blue blood moon'
Morning forecaster Aaron Perlman is known for singing the forecast on Fridays, but today was a special day. The "super blue blood moon" occurred this morning. This is the first time a lunar event like this has taken place since 1866.
Here are the three portions of the super blue blood moon:
1) Super moon: the moon appears 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter. This is called the perigee.
2) Blue moon: two full moons in one month.
3) Blood moon: a full lunar eclipse takes place. This is when the moon moves in the shadow of the earth. It creates a red hue over the moon, hence the "blood" name. This was a full lunar eclipse.
