Tonight I had fun photographing the total lunar eclipse, which, combined with being the closest full moon of the year, produced the so-called Supermoon (and also called a blood moon, since it turns reddish-orange).

Think of how frightening it must have been for ancient people who neither had advanced warning of its occurrence nor scientific knowledge of why it turned red.
