Super Bloodmoon shines Sunday night

Sunday night the skies took on an eerie red glow as the Harvest supermoon could be seen thanks to a total lunar eclipse. Lots of county residents used their telescopes and cameras to view the Super Bloodmoon. This event occurs when the moon is at the point in its orbit when it is closest to the earth. It makes the moon appear larger and brighter. Coupled with the lunar eclipse the moon took on a reddish glow as light refracts through the planet’s atmosphere. The next Bloodmoon eclipse combination will not occur until 2033. (Photo by Suzanne Storey)
