GALLERY: Super Blue Blood Moon in middle Tennessee

(FOX 17 News)

A celestial delight graced the skies early Wednesday morning.

It's the first time in 35 years a blue moon has synced up with a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse. And while Nashville only saw a partial eclipse, this rare moon still dazzled the skies.

A blue moon is the second full moon that occurs within one month. SkyWatch 17 Chief Meteorologist Katy Morgan said blue moons happen every couple years, but it's rare to have a blue moon coincide with a lunar eclipse.

During a total lunar eclipse, the moon will oftentimes be a reddish color.

Aside from the rare moon, middle Tennessee was also treated to a stunning sunrise.
