Lunar Eclipse in Tampa Bay

The lunar eclipse of January 31, 2108 was called a “super blue blood moon.” It was a supermoon because the moon was slightly closer to Earth than usual, so it looked bigger and brighter. A blue moon is when a full moon occurs twice in one month. And blood moon refers to the reddish color the moon takes on during a lunar eclipse. In the Tampa Bay area, we saw a partial lunar eclipse. Here are some photos.
