Super Blue Blood Moon!

 

What a treat last night! For the first time in 152 years, there was a supermoon,
bluemoon, and a total lunar eclipse :) .

It was overcast for much of the eclipse here in Adelaide, South Australia, and I watched mostly behind veiled clouds, which made the transformation appear more mysterious. From super full moon’s brightest haloed light, to the gradually… darkening and disappearing moon; that then changed into blood red,ย rusty iron oxide red!

Slowly, the moon became more orange/yellow and brightened, as the Earth’s shadow leisurely departed, and the eclipse came to a close leaving a bright Supermoon.

I was fortunate in capturing some clear images when the clouds dissipated briefly from time to time. This is what I saw! I hope you enjoy… ย  Did anyone else get to see it? โค ๐Ÿ™‚
