Countdown to the Super Bowl, and the Super Moon!

Listen 07:07

On Wednesday, January 31st, don’t miss the Super Blue Blood Total Lunar Eclipse Moon! This lunar event means that the second full moon in a calendar month coincides with a lunar eclipse, and that the full moon appears slightly larger than usual. A moon like this one has not appeared in the sky since 1982.

Superbowl Sunday is also the 112th birth anniversary of Clyde Tombaugh, discoverer of Pluto.
