Cloud cover permitting, totality should be seen in Tucson between 5:51 AM and 7:07 AM.

This Super Blood Moon will also be a blue moon, which is defined as the second full moon to occur in the same month.

According to NASA, a Super Moon is a Moon that is full when it is also at or near its closest point in its orbit around Earth. Because of its proximity, the moon will appear to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter.
