SLIDESHOW: Various views of the 'super, blue, blood moon'

Posted: Updated:

(AP) -- The moon provided a rare triple treat Wednesday morning.

Much of the world got to see not only a blue moon and a super moon, but also a total lunar eclipse, all rolled into one. There hasn't been a triple lineup like this since 1982, and the next won't occur until 2037.

A blue moon is the second full moon in a month. A super moon is a particularly close full or new moon. A full lunar eclipse -- or blood moon -- has the moon completely bathed in Earth's shadow.
