The eclipse will be visible from eastern South America as it is ending, and from Australia as it is beginning. It also became a "Super Blue Blood Moon" because it synced up with a supermoon, which is a moon that appears extra big and bright, and a blue moon, which is the second full moon during a calendar month.
