Stunning Supermoon Eclipse Wows the World: Photos – Discovery News

There’s no denying it, the “supermoon lunar eclipse” didn’t disappoint.

A large swathe of the planet was treated to a rare lunar event on Sunday night and early Monday morning when a so-called “supermoon” coincided with a lunar eclipse. Neither of these astronomical events are particularly rare in their own right, but their coincidence hasn’t happened since 1982 and won’t happen again until 2033.

Although clouds interrupted most of totality in my location (near Los Angeles, Calif.), I was lucky enough to spot the beautiful “blood moon” for a short time and, later, the bright disk of a supermoon.

Here I’ve collected some supermoon lunar eclipse photos from around the world, including my own. If you want to have your astronomical shots featured, send them to, or tweet me at @astroengine or @Discovery_Space.
