Did you catch the rare “Super Blood Moon” last night?
The rare phenomenon last occurred in 1982 and won’t happen again until the year 2033, so let’s hope you did catch it as it was quite the view.
Last night’s lunar eclipse was “Super” because it happened to be the spot in its slightly oblong orbit that brings it closest to the Earth, called the “perigee.” The moon’s location is what made it look particularly large in the sky.
Some people call the totally eclipsed moon a "blood moon" for the rusty red-orange color it turns once it is completely in the Earth's shadow.
The moon maintained the reddish color for a little over an hour.
