A treat for persons from California and points out west and further are in for a photographic gem tonight: A Super Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse. The whole event lasts the total time of 3 hours and  7 minutes. The start of this major event is starting at 3:47 a.m. CDT which is a little too late for where I am at in the Chicago area and by the time the partial eclipse will begin at 4:45 a.m. the sun will already be on the rise. The epic of the event is at 6:19 a.m., which is after our sunrise. No photos, what a let down, but if you are in the right area, you will be able to witness a great event tonight. The moon will enter Earth’s shadow and naturally turns a blood red color during the point of the total lunar eclipse. This is the first in one in more than two years visible from the United States. It is considered a super blood moon because the moon will also line up in a close approach to our planet, so therefore the event is promoted as a supermoon.

    • The photos posted are in fact from the Full Eclipse – Blood Moon that happened on May 4–5 in the year 1985–36 years ago. They were not from the eclipse that happened last night because from the Chicago area, not only did it rain, but the totality happened after our sunrise, so the moon would have already set. 🙂
