Stargazers around the world Sunday were treated to the rare astronomical event known as a "Super Blood Moon." The cosmic drama is the result of the coinciding of a total lunar eclipse when a full moon is closest to Earth. And while, we've seen impressive Lunar eclipses before, the unique components of the night's event won't come around again until 2033. 

Look at that.
