On the night of 15 May, the Sun, moon and Earth worked together in an epic performance of a complete lunar eclipse. The full moon moved into umbral shadow of the earth, resulting a blood red masterpiece hanging in Mother City skies.
The Super Flower Blood Moon (and first eclipse of 2022) would have been spotted across the country, throughout Africa, the Americas, Europe, Antartica and the Middle East in the early hours.
A few locals captured the stellar event and we’re howling at the outcome. Take a look at last night’s blood moon, following through till the early hours of this morning.
