2018 Super Blue Blood Moon Photos

On January 31, 2018 there was a super blue blood moon. The reason why it is called a super blue blood moon is because it is a super moon, the second full moon in January (Thus making it once in a blue moon), and there was a lunar eclipse, which caused the moon to have a red hue (That’s why it’s called a blood moon). You can read more about it here.

I was very excited to see it, so I got up very early, got my camera and tripod out, and waited and took photos of it. Although I have very nice photos of the beginning stages of the lunar eclipse, I was unable to photograph the moon when the lunar eclipse was in totality. Based off other attempts to photograph something very dark with my camera, I suspected that my camera would not photograph the moon during totality, but I still hoped it would turn out anyway. It didn’t, and I’m still disappointed about it, but I’m still happy with the photos I took of the moon as the eclipse started to happen.

That’s all for now! Thank you for reading!
