Super Moon

Got it!  Mike Davies captures Super Moon

Jan 31st 2018, the super moon has risen in the UK’s night skies and coincides with a supermoon, making it appear 14 percent brighter

There is a supermoon - when a full moon orbits closest to earth.

  A blood moon is just another name for a full moon that's going through a total eclipse. the nickname refers to the moons rusty-reddish tint caused by the reflection of sunlight, during the eclipse.

Many viewers in certain parts of the world were blessed with seeing a lunar eclipse but not here in the UK

 This image was taken over the vale of Neath, and I was fortunate as we had heavy cloud, and when the moon was rising the clouds parted allowing me a fantastic view of our nearest celestial neighbour.

Before the clouds rolled in again, luck was on my side,

The average distance between the Earth and the moon is 239,000 miles.
