A rare celestial and much awaited event in the skies was witnessed yesterday by sky-watchers in the Americas and Western Europe.

The Super Moon (i.e. Moon is 15% larger being closest to Earth and 30% brighter) coincided with the Lunar Eclipse, forming what is termed as the “Blood Moon”.  The Super Moon takes place when a full or new Moon coincides with a Moon that is nearing its minimum distance (perigee) to Earth (i.e. Maximum 405,000 km [Apogee] to as close as 363,000 km [Perigee]).
