If you look up right now, wherever you are, there’s a beautiful bright super-moon orbiting our planet. Today – 31 January 2018 – we’re blessed with a rare lunar occasion… the sight of a full moon, a total lunar eclipse (not visible from South Africa unfortunately), a blue moon and a super-moon all at the same time!
And while SA may not have experienced the lunar eclipse, the Supermoon has still dazzled in the sky… as evidenced by these gorgeous photos:
Peter Pazera: Super Moon…. Benoni… Looks like daylight outside…”
Mircea Gavris: “A bright moonlight 🌔 this eve in Benoni.”
Andrea Ben: “I’ve edited these pics below… but the moon was red for some time. We didn’t see the blue, but when I edited the photo of the blue moon, it was more blue than red! Normally on my colour filter when I edit a moon it will either be pink or red… never blue 🙂 It was an extremely bright moon.”
