We witnessed the super blue blood moon on the 31st of January, 2018 and it was breathtakingly beautiful. A lot of photographers took some amazing pictures of the super blue blood moon and we thought that we should share it with our lovely readers.
What is a supermoon?
In 1979, astrologer Richard Nolle defined the term supermoon as “a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90 percent of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.”
This means the moon would have to be 226,000 miles away from the earth to be defined as ‘super’.
The moon already has a relatively close proximity to earth, so the celestial orb seems a lot bigger when the supermoon phenomena occurs.
Here are some of the most breathtakingly beautiful pictures
Wake up at 2:45, out hiking by 3:30, 1000 feet up by 4:00, camera rolls down 150 foot cliff at 4:15, no problem, everything’s good. 4:30? I could use a nap right now. By 5:00 it’s chill, cameras setup, it’s time to relax before the world’s even awake. Oh, and this is a creative blend of shots all taken from that hike this morning, I hope you enjoy 🌝
6:29am MST -🌕- 100% totality. Overlooking Apache Canyon and Lower Cañoncito. 💙 This is my favorite of all the shots I took. After taking a bunch of photos right outside, I drove up the ridge behind our place to get to higher ground. Twilight was just starting, so I zoomed out and caught some houses in the canyon, and the mountains in the distance.
If you’re a photographer and in case you’ve taken some pictures then do share it with us.
