John Oliver will have some competition for viewers tonight.
If you can find the motivation to will yourself away from HBO and look out the window for an hour tonight, we’d highly recommend you do so.
For the first time in 32 years, a super-blood Moon will bless the northeast skies. This happens when a lunar eclipse – when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its shadow – occurs during the same night of a supermoon, which is when the Moon is closest to the earth.
The Moon will flare in brilliant red hues at a size 14 percent larger while glowing 30 percent brighter than usual.
If you miss it, don’t worry, you’ll only have to wait 18 years to get another glimpse of this spectacular occasion…
