Thousands of Americans are hoping to watch the super blue blood moon and lunar eclipse…a rare celestial trifecta.
NASA claims this amazing moon can best be seen in its totality from places like Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, and parts of Nevada.
On Wednesday this month’s second full moon will appear 14% bigger and 30% brighter. Only those viewing the total eclipse will see the reddish-orange hue of a blood moon.
Also, as SpaceX gets ready for the debut launch of its massive Falcon Heavy rocket next week, it’s planning for the liftoff of a Falcon 9 rocket later on today.
It will be carrying a European communications satellite.
A more than two-hour launch window opens at 4:25 p.m. Eastern time at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
However, there’s been some concern that gusty winds in the forecast could be a problem.
