Super blood moon lunar eclipse of 2019

 

January 24, 2019

On a very cold January night, 6 degrees to be exact, many found themselves wandering outside around 10:43 p.m. to get a peek at what experts were calling the super blood moon and what would be the only lunar eclipse of 2019.

This lunar eclipse and super blood moon did not disappoint, unless you add in the weather. That was disappointing. But our own Franklin Newspaper photographer, Mike Drahosh, braved the elements on Monday and captured it for us fair weather blood moon fans.

The moon was bright and fully visible in a clear sky, and as the Moon began to move into the shadow cast by Earth, Mike was able to capture images along the way which we have shared with this story.

According to NASA, the eclipse was visible in its entirety in North and South America. It is said the Moon was called "super" because it's closest to Earth in its orbit during the full moon. It's called "blood" because the total lunar eclipse turned the Moon a reddish hue.

We at Franklin Newspapers hope you enjoy the images.
