May 26th, 7 : 30 p.m. to 9 : 00 p.m., a rare astronomical event happened with red and burnt orange color : a 'super blood moon.' This phenomenon was the result of two actions : a wupermoon and blood moon. This action has taken place in Greek Poseidon temple, Turkey Ankara, Sydney Opera House in Austalia, Beijing, China, and etc. Now, let's find out exactly about supermoon and bloodmoon. 

 

 

Firstly, supermoon is full moon or new moon, when the Earth - Moon distance is in the lowest tenth of its range, and happens when the moon lines up closer than normal to out planet and appears to be bigger than usual. 

 

Secondly, blood moon is a total lunar eclipse, and it happens when the moon sits directly in the Earth's shadow and is sutck by light filtered through the Earth's atmosphere. Earth has blocked lights that should be going to moon. However, red light has long wavelength than other lights, so red light has been passed.
