Super Blue Moon Eclipse on January 31

Is it the first Blue Moon total eclipse in 150 years, as some social media memes are now claiming? It is … if you’re not considering the whole world, but only the Americas. Sorry European Cousins! What makes a super moon? It's closer to the Earth than usual. What makes a blue moon? It's the second of two full moons in the same month.
