A rare lunar occurence

February 5, 2018

Peggy Udinski sent this incredible shot of last week’s super blue blood moon at Cape Henlopen State Park with the Breakwater Light in the foreground. A moon is super when it’s at its closest point to the Earth; it’s blue when it’s the second full moon in a month, and it’s blood during a lunar eclipse, when the Earth’s shadow casts a red tint.
