Relive the Super Blue Blood Moon in Amazing Photos and Timelapse Video

If you woke up early, you were handsomely rewarded for it.

Did you catch the rare super blue blood moon lunar eclipse that treated the western part of the United States and beyond to a tremendous sight in the early hours this morning?

If you were lucky enough to wake up and see it, we commend. If you weren’t (or were in an area where it wasn’t visible) we’ve assembled some of the captures of the exceptional lunar event to quell your FOMO.

The super blue blood moon was a rare alignment of multiple lunar events, including a lunar eclipse (which turned the moon red by rays of sunlight passing through Earth's atmosphere as the moon fell into our planet's shadow), the second full moon of January (a blue moon) and a supermoon (a full moon that occurs during the moon’s closest point to Earth during its orbit).

These sorts of events don’t happen everyday, so those who were able to witness it were certainly rewarded.
