NASAWhen is the eclipse 2018? Totality occurs at different times across the world
Last night, amateur skywatchers and dedicated telescope-twiddlers alike observed a vanishingly rare "super blue blood moon", the stunning confluence of three distinct celestial events that lent the seemingly-oversized moon a deep rust tint.

The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) had told The Express Tribune that the "Super Blue Blood Moon" will be easily visible from Sindh, Balochistan and coastal areas.
A super moon is when the moon's orbit is closest to the Earth, so it appears up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual.
Chiefs agree to trade QB Smith to Redskins

Since the full moon last night will be the second full moon of the month, it is dubbed a blue moon.
"Often cast in a reddish hue because of the way the atmosphere bends in the light, totally eclipsed Moons are sometimes called blood moons".
"The lunar eclipse would give scientists a special opportunity to study the Moon using the astronomer's equivalent of a heat-sensing, or thermal camera", NASA said in a statement earlier. On Wednesday, much of the world will get to see not only a blue moon which is a supermoon, but also a lunar eclipse, all rolled into one celestial phenomenon.
The eclipse was visible best in the western half of the US and Canada Wednesday morning, and across the Pacific into Asia as the moon rose Wednesday night into Thursday.

"The moon will pass by the earth's shadow at a time when it is evening here, that's why people saw the super blue blood moon vividly here in the Philippines", Martinez emphasized.
