A rare lunar trifecta in the early morning hours had space watchers captivated all over the globe.
A combination of a super moon, blue moon and blood moon appeared in the pre-dawn hours.
Two of the three special moons have not appeared together since 1866.
Andrea Moraes of Ucluelet was up early Wednesday and took stunning photos of the event at 4:15 a.m. and 5:41 a.m.
Wednesday saw a perfect alignment of the moon, earth and sun.

A super moon happens when the full moon is at the closest point of its orbit to the earth.
A blue moon takes place about every 36 months when it’s full twice in the same month.
A blood moon occurs during a lunar eclipse when faint red sunbeams peek out around the edges.
