We’re a bit bummed that we didn’t get to witness the Super Blood Moon last night (the weather didn’t allow for it here in Central Florida–think thunder, lightning, overcast skies, and tons of rain). While we weren’t able to view it from our own telescope that we’ve purchased during a trip to the Lowell Observatory in Arizona, our budding backyard astronomers were able to follow the event with us via our Twitter feed and then via Flickr.
Sky gazers around Central Florida gathered at the Buehler Planetarium at the Seminole State College in Sanford last night, according to the Orlando Sentinel. We’re curious to know what they were able to see and capture during this once-in-a-super-blood-moon phenomenon!
In case you missed the event in person or via the livestream (like we did), below is an awesome time lapse by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
The NASA Goddard Space Flight Center also started a Flickr group so that other photographers can share their photos of the Super Blood Moon. We plan to browse through these photos throughout the week as it’s quite educational not just for the kids but for us parents as well!
