Photos of the Day: The Super Blue Blood Moon...

A snapshot of the Super Blue Blood Moon as seen from Summitridge Park in Diamond Bar, California...on January 31, 2018.

Earlier today, I drove down to a park in Diamond Bar, California, to take snapshots of today's Supermoon/lunar eclipse...also known as the Super Blue Blood Moon. This is the second time since New Year's Day that a Supermoon graced the skies above California and other parts of the country. This is also the second Full Moon we've had this month (the first one being on New Year's Day)—hence the nickname Blue Moon. And of course, Earth's shadow caused the lunar surface to be bathed in a nice crimson hue during the eclipse, hence the term Blood Moon. According to NASA, the next Super Blue Blood Moon will be on January 31, 2037! Don't ask me how old I'll be that year (I already checked... D'oh!), but I can't wait to get photos of that lunar spectacle when it occurs. Presumably, I'll employ a much better camera than the Nikon D3300 DSLR (which I used to take these images) next time. Happy Hump Day!
