These two events, which haven't happened together for approx 30 years
will happen late on Sunday 27 September, and in the early hours of Monday 28 September.
1. The SUPER moon can be seen from Sunday evening - all night.
A Super moon is when the moon is closest to the Earth, so it will appear bigger and brighter to us all.
2. The BLOOD moon will be caused by a lunar eclipse. The moon will start going into partial eclipse at 12.07am GMT. The lunar eclipse will then become TOTAL from 1.11am until 2.23am. The eclipse will then end entirely at 4.27am GMT
During a lunar eclipse, the Moon passes directly behind Earth into our planet's shadow,
which only happens when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are in complete alignment.
Then as the light bends around our planet on its way from the sun, it will turn it red,
and the bloody colour of the moon gives it its name. The degree of colour will depend on the dust in the atmosphere.
