World basks under a rare blood red sky
An incredibly rare lunar eclipse lit up the night sky around the world last night.
People across the world marvelled at the sight as a “supermoon”, a Blue Moon and lunar eclipse, coincided for the first time in 150 years this week.
The lunar eclipse element causes the moon to glow blood red. Blue Moons are defined as the second full moon in a calendar month.
While not quite as spectacular over Ireland, people took to social media to share photos of the Supermoon 2018.
Australia was first to witness the full display, while much of Asia and the US also enjoyed it.
