Did you catch the supermoon lunar eclipse this past September 27th, 2015? It’s a supermoon and a lunar eclipse or ‘blood moon’ happening at the same time. It was visible around much of the planet in a rare celestial event. The last one was in 1982 and the next one is in 2033.
We watched it here a few miles west of Boston. My iPhone images weren’t great but my friend Stella shared the photo her daughter Sam took.
Here’s a great video from NASA on the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse.
