Super Blood Moon

People around the world stayed up Wednesday to watch a cosmic event called a super blood moon, a combination of three celestial phenomena — Lunar Eclipse, Blood Moon and a Flower Moon. The Bloodmoon visible today will be one of the biggest of the year.

This Super Moon will be visible Wednesday across the Pacific — offering the best viewing — as well as the western half of North America, bottom of South America and eastern Asia.

It also happens to be the first total lunar eclipse in more than two years. According to Nasa, "Compared to other Full Moons in 2021, the Flower Moon will have the nearest approach to Earth, making it appear as the closest and largest Full Moon of the year. This big moon seen in the skies is called Supermoon."

A Total Lunar Eclipse happens when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned in a line. During the eclipse, the Earth comes in between Sun and the Moon blocking sun rays from reaching the Moon, casting its shadow on the lunar surface.

The Earth's shadow that falls on the Moon is divided into three parts Umbra, the darker, central part, Penumbra, which is the outer part of the shadow and Antumbra, the partly shaded area beyond the umbra.

During the Total Lunar Eclipse, Earth's umbra covers the moon. Total Lunar Eclipse only happens at full Moon.

Some places in the Pacific and East Asia got to see the show before midnight, while night owls in Hawaii and the western part of North America got to watch it in the early morning hours.

Sky gazers along the US East Coast were out of luck because the moon was setting and the sun rising.

The full eclipse lasted about 15 minutes, while the whole cosmic show lasted five hours. A partial eclipse began as the moon edged into the Earth’s outer shadow, called the penumbra, before moving more fully into the main shadow and then reversing the process.
