Super Blood Moon (2015)


Super Blood Moon

Super Blood Moon Eclipse Compilation of Phases

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:
