A total eclipse of the moon occurred Sunday night, Sept 27th into Monday morning, Sept 28th.
“It happens to be the closest supermoon of 2015. It’s the Northern Hemisphere’s Harvest Moon, or full moon nearest the September equinox. It’s the Southern Hemisphere’s first full moon of spring. This September full moon is also called a Blood Moon, because it presents the fourth and final eclipse of a lunar tetrad: four straight total eclipses of the moon, spaced at six lunar months (full moons) apart,” says earthsky.org.
Many of you may have rushed out last night to catch the phenomenon or even photograph it. Unfortunately, we had some cloudy skys in the Middle Tennessee area Sunday night, so many of us could not see the magnitude of the Blood Moon and the eclipse. Lucky for us, photographer Bryan Snider of Gilbert Arizona took an amazing time lapse video of the event.
The next super blood moon will occur in 2033.
