Did You See It?

Will bloody clouds yield a Super Blood Moon and view of the Lunar Eclipse?


According to CNN — Stargazers, night owls and space observers, be prepared, the eclipse of the supermoon is coming.

The United States and much of the world will see skies graced by a bright, big moon that will be encapsulated in a total lunar eclipse late Sunday evening into early Monday, according to NASA.

The lunar combination is happening for the first time in 30 years.

The supermoon, which comes around once every year, will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter in the sky that evening before it is engulfed by an eclipse for more than an hour.

As if that wasn’t already a spectacular sight, this eclipse is the fourth and final in the so called “blood moons,” a phrase that has become popular to describe the four lunar eclipses we have seen in 2014 and 2015. Scientifically this is known as a “lunar tetrad.”

Another supermoon eclipse will not occur again until 2033.


The clouds blew away. My smart phone barely captured the lunar eclipse. I prettied it up with a quote from the song “Eclipse” from Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon © 1995-2014 Pink-Floyd-Lyrics.com

“…and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.” Pink Floyd

These pics will go into Lucile De Godoy’s “The clinic, Photo101 Rehab

  1. And I know this is an old thread ….
    Talking of the eclipse, last night was a blood moon where the moon turned red for an eclipse. We didn’t see it because of the clouds, I was sorely disappointed.

    I was thankfully able to view the whole eclipse in NY! It was thrilling! It got chilly towards the end but it was worth waiting outside! I’m glad you saw it too… My phone took bad pics of it. Yours turned out good!

        Indeed it was a cool sight! Yes, the iPhone camera didn’t capture it well:( A real camera would’ve allowed me to get a better pic for sure!

  3. It really was quite wonderful! We had a cloudless sky and were able to watch the whole cycle from our deck. I tried to get a picture using my DSLR but I didn’t have tripod or a suitable lens so it wasn’t very good. Fortunately, there are a lot of good, well-equipped photographers out there who managed to get some great shots.

  4. I’m in San Luis Obispo, CA right now and we saw it last night. As it was completing the cycle, there was cloud cover. Not optimal conditions. But everyone in the restaurant gathered around and we all watched what we could all together….that was cool.

  5. We saw it 🙂 My wife got some great shots of it with her camera. I wish it wouldn’t have been a school night so our kids could have watched it, too. Oh well. Hopefully we’ll get to see it together in 2033.
