Last week, the the moon entered a phase called the supermoon lunar eclipse where it appeared 14% larger and had a reddish colour to it. This phenomenon occurs when there is a full moon and a lunar eclipse when the Earth shadows the Moon. Unfortunately, this phenomenon wasn’t visible here in the Philippines, so we merely got to see photos of it online. Here is one of our favourites by Michael Galvante Ibias, a Filipino fashion photographer based in Madrid, Spain.
“The photo shows part of the phase until it reaches the Copper Ball appearance, which took place for almost 1.5 hours,” Michael shares. “The complete lunar eclipse lasted for 3 hours.”
How beautiful is that? Don’t you wish we could’ve seen that moon over here and tried our hand at taking pictures of it, too? <3
