    At 0:55, Stephen Colbert makes a common mistake regarding the reference to a lunar eclipse as a “Blood Moon”.
    • Yes… this full moon was a supermoon, meaning the Moon was within 90% of perigee, when it is closest to Earth. This happens once roughly every 28 days and is only relatively rare when it coincides with a full moon and quite rare when that full moon is also when a lunar eclipse occurs. A supermoon is closer and marginally larger in angular diameter, but it is more noticeably much brighter.
    • Yes… Indians referred to the January moon as the Wolf Moon for the reasons Stephen stated.
    • But no, a Blood Moon isn’t called that just because total lunar eclipses appear to be pink, orange or red. The term “Blood Moon” isn’t one astronomers use, but something coined as an Internet meme to refer to a tetrad of lunar eclipses occurring consecutively in the eighteen year Saros cycle (this lunar eclipse was #27 of 73.[2] It’s an unfortunate term because “blood” suggests red, and so too the Pink Moon which is simply the first full moon occurring every April is sometimes mistaken as a term for a lunar eclipse for similar reasons.

    You still haven't apologized to Tulsi Gabbard for disrespecting here for no real reason, or rather for being human like the rest of us.
    Apparently you were born perfect and didn't need to grow like ordinary people.

    A red letter day for Saudi women. Here it's a joke. And it was a good joke too. But how much and what did they have to do to get it? That's the story.
