The Lunar Eclipse will coincidentally occur during a supermoon. A supermoon is when the moon appears 10-15% larger than it normally would. This isn't the first time this has happened in recent years. Around the same time last year, a lunar eclipse, a supermoon, and a blue moon all occurred at the same time.
