On early Wednesday morning, stargazers were able to see a rare phenomenon in the sky. Onlookers around the world were able to see a super blue blood moon lunar eclipse. 

According to National Geographic, this is the first time since 1982 that viewers got a "celestial three-for-one combo."

There was a full moon that earned the title "supermoon" due to its close proximity to Earth. It was also a blue moon because it was the second full moon this month. Additionally, a lunar eclipse took place, meaning that the Earth moved between the moon and the sun, causing the moon to have a red, bloodlike tint. 

With everything combined, there was a super blue blood moon eclipse. While some parts of the world were only exposed to one of the effects, others were able to see all three. Below are some of the photos from the event, curated by Nat Geo.
