See Cheyenne's View of the Blood Moon Eclipse

The Super Blood Wolf Moon eclipse occurred over Saturday night and into Sunday morning across North America. The next full lunar eclipse will take place in 2021. Sky gazers witnessed the only lunar eclipse for 2019, which involved a supermoon happening at the same time.

A lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes through Earth's shadow.

Michelle Vincent from the Astrology Society of South Africa interpreted what the lunar eclipse energy means for believers in astrology.

When the full moon moved into Earth's shadow, it darkened, but did not disappear.




And as the moon was up to 30pc brighter and up to 15pc closer to the earth, the eclipse became particularly visible for spectators. At the peak of the spectacle, sunlight passed through Earth's atmosphere and lit the moon, making it appear to glow red.

"In ancient Greece, Aristotle noted that the shadows on the Moon during lunar eclipses were round, regardless of where an observer saw them", said NASA. And David Wahl, the Director of Awesome at Seattle's Archie McPhee novelty emporium, suggested that from now on, each night's moon should be given a jazzy name. In January, it's known as the "wolf moon", inspired by the hungry animals that howled outside of villages long ago, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac. Lunar eclipse parties were cancelled elsewhere due to a flash freeze across central and north-eastern United States.

But why don't we see total lunar eclipses more often?

The Moon will be positioned high in the Western skies as seen from the entire country.
