Photos: Last Night’s Super Blue Blood Moon

Last night, 31st January 2018, saw a special lunar event that hasn’t happened for 150 years. This triple-lunar “super blue blood moon” amazed those who stayed up late in an effort to gaze upwards at the night sky. Not everyone got to see the triple whammy super-blue-blood moon, but in places like the UK we saw a super blue moon.

For those that didn’t have cloud cover, the sight was magnificent. But if there was cloud cover, then you only have another 150 ye–… Let’s just share with you some of the photos Nature TTL readers managed to capture last night.

In Canada, Chris Bayley took this HDR image of the moon.
