what is a super blue moon

Last night sky gazers and astronomy buffs had an interesting night for looking up into space. There was a super blue moon in the night sky. This rare trifecta of occurrences was a full moon, super moon and blue moon. 

A full moon is when the entire moon is illuminated. A super moon is when the moon appears larger than normal because it is in a closer orbit to the planet than usual. A blue moon is when there are two different occurrences of a full moon in the same month. Blue moons occur about every two to three years and a super blue moon is very rare. If stuff like this gets you geeked, you'll want to check out the upcoming film DEEP SKY which will be playing exclusively at IMAX theaters beginning October 20th.

DEEP SKY brings the awe-inspiring images captured by NASA's Webb Telescope to IMAX. The film takes audiences on a journey to the beginning of time and space, to never-before-seen cosmic landscapes, and to recently discovered exoplanets, planets around other stars. Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Nathaniel Kahn and narrated by Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams, DEEP SKY follows the high-stakes global mission to build JWST and to launch it into orbit one-million miles from Earth, in an attempt to answer questions that have haunted us since the beginning of time: Where did we come from?

How did the universe begin? Are we alone? 13 billion years in the making, DEEP SKY reveals the universe as we have never seen it before; immersing audiences in the stunning pictures beamed back to earth by NASA’s new telescope — and capturing their vast beauty at a scale that can only be experienced on the giant IMAX screen.
