11 Photos of the Super-Mega-Ultra-Blood-Moon-Eclipse That You Probably Didn’t See
Every time there’s a super/blood moon or solar/lunar eclipse, I look at the incredible photos the next day and think, “Okay next time I’m going to stay up late and witness these amazing astro-phenomenons”.
Maybe it’s the light pollution, maybe it’s always cloudy where I am when these things happen, but I have yet to experience with my own eyes the magic of these celestial events. Thankfully there are people around the world who not only experience them but beautifully capture it for all to enjoy. Until next time!
Photo @ladzinski / As we are seeing posted all over the social feeds, understandably so, tonight was the #SuperMoon #LunarEclipse. If you were lucky enough to see it I'm sure you would agree that it was absolutely incredible. This photo here is an in-camera #DoubleExposure, which is essentially photographing two photos onto a single frame, all in camera. It's an old film trick and in cases like this the perfect way to create an unusually cool effect. This was shot this evening at the top of #LoganPass in #GlacierNationalPark Montana while here on assignment. Wherever you may be, I hope you got to enjoy this rare and beautiful occasion this evening!

Last night's #supermoon. This phenomenon occurs when the #Moon is in the closest part of its orbit to Earth, meaning it appears larger in the sky. The #eclipse caught here by @tomas_sent which made the Moon appear red has been visible in North America, South America, West Africa and all over Western Europe. This phenomenon was last observed in 1982 and won't come again until 2033. Those that were dedicated enough to stay up, were truly rewarded! 🙌😳 // #thisislondon
