The world witnessed the first Total Lunar Eclipse of the year, also known as the ‘Blood Moon’. Accompanying this phenomenon was the fact that it was the full moon in the month of May also known as the ‘Flower Moon’.
Moon gazers all over the world had a gala time watching the moon become blood red during the total Lunar Eclipse. The full flower moon passed through the shadow of planet Earth overnight on 15 May and 16 May.
Notably, the full moon was also near its closest point to the earth for a month, thereby adding onto the list of phenomenon and finally rendering it as the Super Flower Blood Moon lunar eclipse! Phew.
India may have skipped the invite from moon to witness this beautiful phenomenon. However, here are pictures from all over the world where the moon basked in its glory and looked majestic.
And for those who desperately suffered the FOMO, let us tell you, many along the US East Coast faced bad weather which blocked their sight. However, it definitely was a stunning sight in regions across North and South America, Antarctica, Europe, Africa and the east Pacific.
