The last Blue moon eclipse occurred on 30 December 1982 in India and several other parts of the world, while it was much earlier, on 31 March 1866 in the U.S. and some other parts of the world.
An event that hasn't happened in North America since March 1866 is, literally, on the horizon. Central and eastern Asia, Indonesia, New Zealand and most of Australia will get a fine view of this Moon show in the evening sky.
The spectacle begins with what's called a penumbral eclipse, as the moon crosses into the Earth's lighter shadow and causes it to lose its usual brightness. "There will be no totality" of the eclipse in this area. On December 31, 2009, there was an eight percent partial eclipse on December 31, 2009.

But something very special will happen to the moon on this date. The total phase of this lunar eclipse, also known as a 'Blood Moon, will be visible in large parts of U.S., northeastern Europe, Russia, Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Pacific, and Australia. The physics is the same as for a sunset: sunlight is being bent through the Earth's atmosphere before it hits the moon. When the sun sets in the west, the full moon rises in the east; and when the sun rises in the east, the full moon sets in the west.
Well that's great, but what's a supermoon, blood moon or blue moon?
According to Science Centre Singapore, the three-in-one moon will give off a coppery red colour, which is characteristic of a total eclipse.
