“People from across the country are gazing up into the sky early Wednesday morning to get a glimpse of the rare “Super Blue Blood Moon”.  With my camera in hand, I went out in the chilly early morning at 5:50 am, to capture this photo of the “Super Blue Blood Moon”.  Although here in NY we did not get the full effect of the Blood Moon, you can see a slight reddish circle around the bright Moon. 

A “Super Moon” appears brighter since it is at its closest point to Earth while in Orbit; making the Moon appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than a full moon.

Thank goodness I have always been a very early riser, since according to news reports, at 5:51 a.m. EST on Jan. 31, people in the New York City area will see the Moon enter Earth’s penumbra (the lighter, outer part of its shadow), according to Space.com.  The penumbra slightly darkens the Moon, though only a little. Note: as I mentioned above the slight red color surrounding the “Super Blue Red Moon”.  Not since 1866 has anyone witnessed this phenomena of a totally lunar eclipse occurring with a Blue Moon.

Unfortunately the West Coast was the better place to view the complete beauty of the complete lunar eclipse of the Blue Moon, creating the Blood Moon.  The picture above was taken on the West Coast.

    I don’t think the eclipse part happened here, but I heard about the “super blood moon.” We’re usually up at 5:30, but I’m always taking care of Baby first thing in the morning and couldn’t venture out to try to get a look! It was pretty cloudy here, anyway.

    Some of the photos I have seen of the Blood Moon were spectacular! I was even surprised I was able to the the shot I did as it was supposed to be cloudy here also. Truthfully taking care of a little baby’s needs at 5:30 far outshines any “Super Moon”!!!
