Some of the Best Photos of Last Night's Super Blue Blood Moon from Around the World
Did the clouds block your view of the moon? Well, here's what it looked like.
It might sound like some sort of lunar identity crisis, but the rare super blue blood moon proved a pretty spectacular addition to last night's skies.
Stargazers across Australia had prime position to view the celestial phenomenon, which hasn't occurred anywhere in the world in over 35 years. The event combined the first total lunar eclipse since 2015, with a blue moon, or the second full moon of the calendar month.
Clouds might have made for sketchy viewing in some parts of the country, though, as always, social media is chock full of impressive snaps from folks lucky enough to catch the astronomical treat.
Here are some of the best shots of 2018's blue blood moon from around the planet.
