The moon is providing a rare triple treat this week.On Wednesday, much of the world will get to see not only a blue moon and a supermoon, but also a total lunar eclipse, all rolled into one. A supermoon is a particularly close full or new moon, appearing somewhat brighter and bigger.The moon will actually be closest to Earth on Tuesday -- just over 223,000 miles (359,000 kilometers).Midway through Wednesday's eclipse, the moon will be even farther away -- 223,820 miles (360,200 kilometers) -- but still within unofficial supermoon guidelines.While a supermoon is considered less serious and scientific than an eclipse, it represents a chance to encourage people to start looking at the moon, according to Petro.
