A picture taken on January 31, 2018 shows the moon rising behind a mountain during a lunar eclipse, referred to as the “super blue blood moon” near Syria-Turkey border at the Hassa district in Hatay.
Stargazers across large swaths of the globe had the chance to witness a rare “super blue blood Moon” on January 31, 2018, when Earth’s shadow bathed our satellite in a coppery hue. The celestial show was the result of the Sun, Earth, and Moon lining up perfectly for a lunar eclipse just as the Moon is near its closest orbit point to Earth, making it appear “super” large.
