The Blue Blood Moon wasn’t exactly visible from South Africa, but we can at least look at the best images snapped around other parts of the world.
In case you didn’t know what a Blue Blood Moon was, neither did we. So we looked it up and it’s basically a collision of three lunar activities – super moon, blue moon and blood moon.
A super moon occurs when the moon is at its closest to Earth. A Blue Moon happens when we have 2 full moons in one month, which only happens once every 3 years or so. A Blood Moon is when the moon goes through the shadow of the earth. Combine these three things and you get a Blue Blood Moon.
Here are some of the most exciting images of the January 2018 Blue Blood Moon.
