Barbadian are tonight witnessing what’s been called ‘the astronomical event of the year’ – a rare cosmic combination that won’t happen again until 2033.

This particular eclipse is extra special because it coincides with the biggest, brightest moon of the year, also known as a “supermoon.”

In addition to this, a lunar eclipse will occur. During the eclipse, the larger-than-usual moon will take on a strange red hue – becoming what’s known as a blood moon.

lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly behind the Earth into its shadow. This can occur only when the sun, Earth and moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle.
