Super blood moon!  God amaze me every day!

Since 1910, a supermoon lunar eclipse has only happened five times, NASA reported. The last time was in 1982 and it won’t happen again until 2033. What makes this event special is that it occurred while the moon is at its closest point to the Earth, a stage in its orbit called perigee. This is 31,000 miles closer to the Earth than at the farthest point in the moon’s orbit, called an apogee. While this is happened, there was also a lunar eclipse where the Earth comes between the sun and the moon, causing the Earth’s shadow to cover the moon. This gave the moon a beautiful dark reddish, coppery color.
