A blue moon is the second full moon in any calendar month. Supermoons occur when the moon is at its closest point to the earth. At this time, it looks a lot bigger in the sky. And a blood moon is when during an eclipse, the surface of the moon has a reddish tint.

The last appearance was over 150 years ago.

For the first time since 1866, this phenomenon occurred. It was visible all around the world from Washington DC to Moscow and Tokyo, Japan. Even in some parts of Africa, the spectacular sight was visible.

Best of the Super Blue Blood Moon.

On January 21, millions of people around the world had their cameras out to capture this once-in-a-lifetime spectacle. These are some of the most amazing pictures we discovered.

Matilda Bay

Decided to head to Matilda Bay to watch the moonrise. The kids are still in the water and the light looks amazing coming across the bay. Now to wait for the eclipse.

Boulder County, Colorado

Despite the northern front range of #Colorado being partly cloudy this morning, the little of the #LunarEclipse i managed to see was incredible and totally worth the struggle to find an angle. I left my house around 5:15am with no idea where I would be heading, which generally speaking isn’t the best plan but it somehow worked in my favor today. From Boulder, where I live, the view was pretty obstructed by clouds, forcing me to drive further northeast to get away from the mountains and clouds. The eclipse was a #SuperBlueBloodMoon and peaked around 6:30 am which was perfect, giving a fair amount of blue hour light to work with. I was lucky to get this photo here of #MountMeeker and Colorado’s northern most 14,000 foot mountain, #LongsPeak, shot with an 80-400mm lens. Swipe through the carousel to see a few other photos from this mornings mission ✌????

Photo of the Day: What is a #SuperBlueBloodMoon, anyway? It's when a super moon (full moon close to earth in orbit), blue moon (the second full moon in a month), and lunar eclipse all occur on the same night. Early Wednesday morning (January 31st) is the first super blue blood moon in 150 years.

Malaysia

The opportunity to witness a celestial phenomenon is absolutely precious, especially in Malaysia, given the hell unpredictable weather and often cloudy condition in Malaysia. I thought it was hopeless and almost gave up when it started to rain one hour prior to the event, luckily enough the rain stopped with the event looming and the cloudy sky turned clear just right at the totality of the event. The photographing process wasn't completely smooth but at least the larger part of the eclipse occured without the obstruction of cloud. Obviously this more-than-4-hour total lunar eclipse required quite some patience. ???? ????. This is a composite photo with the eclipse and foreground shot separately. . #throwback #TotalLunarEclipse #SuperBlueBloodMoon2018 #composite #paddyfield #phenomena #astronomy #moon #celestial #skywatcher #night_excl #astrosprout #NightScaper #astrophotography #canon #canonphotography

Photo of the Day: December 3rd was the 2017's one and only full supermoon—meaning the full moon and lunar perigee were only days apart. Thanks to our friends at @NASA for this pic! . . . #POTD #photooftheday #picoftheday #supermoon #fullmoon #washingtonDC #NASA #lunar #moon #nature #spaceneedle

The moon actually affects humans.

Researchers have ample proof to support the theory that the full moon indeed affects human sleep cycles. For many years, the suggestion was unfounded but that has changed.

Hello super moon - I missed you. #newyork #supermoon #nyc ????@pedromcbride #archive #moon #laluna

Early research did identify some connection between the full moon and sleep cycles. It was not until 2013, that the Cajochen study presented definite information. In summary, “full moons were associated with longer times to fall asleep, reduced sleep efficiency, and less overall sleep time.”

The study assessed the sleep cycles of a group of 33 adults over a three-year period. It was long believed that the extended presence of a bright moon in the sky may have disturbed sleep cycles of our ancestors who slept outdoors.

Best images of the Super Blue Blood Moon

From Bangkok to New York City and beyond, skygazers got to see a "Super Blue Blood Moon" on Wednesday. This "lunar trifecta" occurs when three phenomena take place all at once, which hasn't happened since 1982.

Present living conditions notwithstanding, the full moon still affects sleep cycles. The conclusion is that the effect of the full moon is more physiological, as against a conditioned response to changes in the environment.

In spite of this conclusion, further studies about the moon and its effect on humans continues to be conducted around the world.
