Super Eclipse

The spectacular Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse from January 2018 was a great photography opportunity!

January 31st, 2018 saw a rare event for sky watchers with the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse.

To understand better, a Blue Moon is when there are 2 full moons in the same calendar month. Whilst a Supermoon refers to the Moon’s closest orbit approach to the earth, making it appear larger. An Eclipse occurs when the Moon passes into the Earth’s shadow, and the Blood Moon refers to the red tint cast over the Moon by the Earth’s shadow during a Lunar Eclipse.

It was the first time since 1866 that each of these aspects aligned to form the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse and was an exceptional opportunity to photograph. Our resident Photographer got hundreds of shots, with only a dozen of the best being available for sale.
