The Awesomeness Of The Super Blood Moon13.6k views
In certain parts of the world last night you may have had the opportunity to see the rare super blood moon during a lunar eclipse.
The blood-red-super-moon-lunar-eclipse is a result of the moon being at its closest point of its orbit to the Earth. It won’t reach this position again until 2033. It gets 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual.
The dark red effect is caused because the Earth is fully in the way of the light between the sun and the moon. NASA also reckons “it’s caused by particles in our atmosphere; when there have been a lot of fires and/or volcanic eruptions, lunar eclipses will appear darker and redder.”
Hope you managed to have a cheeky look with the naked eye! If not, no worries, here are some shit hot photos.
