Super Blood Wolf Moon!!! Over Sapphire Valley!!!!

A total lunar eclipse occurred all over North and South America between the evening of Sunday, January 20 and the early morning hours of Monday, January 21.



As this supermoon was also a wolf moon (the first full moon in a calendar year), it was referred to as a "super blood wolf moon" due to the red color of the Moon - caused by sunlight passing through the Earth's atmosphere.
