Ever wondered why people use the term ''once in a blue moon''? It's because, according to NASA, a blue moon happens only once every 2.7 years.

The supermoon will be viewable in New York City and Miami at 5:51 am on January 31, with the distinctive darkening and reddening of the eclipse stealing the limelight at 6:48 am local time.
