Last night the world witnessed a rare lunar trilogy, it was a blue moon, a supermoon. The supermoon occurs when the moon is unusually close to earth, making it bigger and brighter. A blood moon is a beautiful moment during an eclipse when the moon appears red. The event took place for the first time after 1866 a whopping 150 years later. NASA tagged the lunar eclipse as “Super blue blood moon”. It was clearly visible in parts of US, north-Europe, Russia, Asia, Indian and the Pacific Ocean and Australia. It turned out to be a triple eye treat for the sky gazers, and people around the world enjoyed it. The moon was larger, brighter and reddish. The eclipse lasted for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.
