The Blue moon, super moon and blood moon all occurred the same time last night and Baguio City was all looking above for a glimpse of this rare phenomenon.
What is the difference between the Blue Moon, Super Moon, and Blood Moon?
There are two definitions of a Blue Moon. One is a type of Full Moon where the moon looks larger than usual and when the moon actually looks blue. The blue moon turns that way because of a rare type of dust in the atmosphere.
A Supermoon happens when a Full Moon or New Moon is near the Moon’s closest approach to Earth.
A Super Full Moon looks around 12% to 14% bigger than its counterpart, the Micromoon, and up to 7% bigger than an average Full Moon.
The phenomenon whereby the moon in total eclipse appears reddish in color.
The Super Blue Blood Moon
People from Baguio were anticipating this event and they all did the same thing.
People just looked up at the sky, took some photos, and stood in amazement!
If you missed this rare phenomenon,the next super blue blood moon will happen on Jan. 31, 2037. Although its a long wait, phenomena like this one last night occur very rarely and it is good to anticipate this kind of things beforehand.
The phenomenon lasted a full 1 hour and 14 minutes, leaving plenty of time for people to take in the breathtaking views.
Let’s look at how the world viewed the blood moon!

Unfortunately tonight's Lunar Eclipse weather forecast looks dismal here in Sydney with little chance of clear skies. Here are a couple of my existing efforts from previous eclipses. Still hoping to improve on these sometime but sadly it looks like tonight won't be the night I do it. 🌑
