A rare ‘super blood moon’ will be visible in Australian skies tonight.

The double celestial event will feature a super moon, when the moon reaches its closest point to Earth in its orbit, and a blood moon, which is caused by a total lunar eclipse.

Astronomer and astrophysicist, Dr Brad Tucker, said it was exciting it could be viewed at a “normal human time”.

“It’s something you definitely don’t want to miss because of how cool and also how easy it is to see!”

He said 7.45pm-9.30pm is the peak action time.
