ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A rare and spectacular occurrence will display in the sky Sunday night. A blood moon lunar eclipse will be visible around 9 p.m., but it could be hard to see due to cloudy weather in the South Georgia region.

Two occurrences will take place simultaneously, giving the effect seen.

"This ones going to be unique because at the same time that the eclipse is happening, the moon is going to be at its closest approach and it's also going to be a blood moon. The moon will actually turn red," said Thronateeska Center astronomer Jim Friese.

Experts said another total lunar eclipse will not happen until 2018.
