Super Blue Blood Moon


The weather in Singapore is often so cloudy that we cannot be sure we will see any astronomical phenomena. So it was with some surprise that the January 31 moon was well visible through most of its phases. For the record, it was a Blue moon (the second full moon in a month), a Blood moon (due to a phase in the eclipse when partial sunlight hits the moon) and a Super moon (as the moon is closest to the Earth at this time).

These are my intermittent attempts to catch the moon through its phases over four hours, as seen from Singapore!

Beginning
Super moon rising, shining brightly
Eclipse starting
A little bite in the bottom left corner as Earth casts its shadow
Blood Moon!
Blood moon!
Closer View
A closer view of the blood moon
Full Eclipse
Full eclipse with a bright crescent where the Earth’s shadow is leaving the moon
Eclipse is over
It’s the super moon again, almost directly overhead
Wolf moon?
The clouds give the moon a blue and red halo

  1. Fun to see pictures of this from the other side of the world. Looks like it happened early nighttime for you. We had to go outside at 4:45 a.m. to see the best part of it. My baby woke up around then, so we got a wake-up call easily. 🙂
