Super Blood Moon (2015)
September 27th marked the occurrence of an event that was last seen in 1982, The Super Blood Moon. Seeing that this event last happen the year I was born and its next occurrence is slated for 2033, I had to try my best to ensure I captured this event. The evening was plagued with blankets of clouds (more like a blanket and sheet set :D), which reduced visibility and blocked the moon totally. I did manage to capture a few good images of the moon as it slowly phased into the full eclipse, and being color with a red hue from the red rim light of the sun behind the earth. The last image I got was just a few minutes before it fully eclipsed. If you don’t understand why the moon became red then here is an animated explanation from NASA:
