May 26’s Super Flower Blood Moon

Bu: NIAH MADIGAN

Wednesday, May 26 marked not only a super moon, but also a lunar eclipse. According to NASA, a blood moon occurs during a lunar eclipse, when the Earth is directly between the moon and the sun. Earth’s atmosphere filters the sunlight, only letting red light pass through. Supermoons make the moon look larger than normal because it is at its closest point to Earth, known as the perigee. May’s full moon is referred to as a “flower” moon because of the abundance of flowers during the month, creating the term “super flower blood moon” for the moon on May 26. This moon occurred for the first time in almost six years, and will not occur for another 12 years, on October 8, 2033.

The spectacular moon was seen all over the world. Here is a collection of photos of Wednesday’s super flower blood moon from all over the world.
