The Super Moon and Blue Moon Occurred And The World Excitedly Bore Witness.



The world witnessed a "super blue blood moon" on Wednesday morning, and it is been quite a while since this occurrence.  

During the astronomical event, the full moon appeared to turn red (a "blood moon") as it travels through the ruddy shadow of Earth. The total lunar eclipse looked slightly larger than normal (a "supermoon"), since the moon is in the part of its orbit that brings it closest to our planet. It also happens to be the second full moon in a month (often called a "blue moon").

But those who live in the eastern US, South America, Africa, Europe, and other regions had trouble seeing the eclipse at its greatest moment, at least in person.

That's because the event began at around 5:51 a.m. ET with a partial eclipse, which was when the moon starts to pass into Earth's penumbral or outermost shadow. Then it slides deeper into Earth's umbral or innermost shadow over the next couple of hours, peaking at its reddest color around 8:31 a.m. ET. The Super Blue Blood Moon wrapped up with a second partial eclipse that ended at 11:08 a.m. ET.
