April’s Super Moon 2021

Because it was cloudy during the lunar eclipse, here is a glimpse the day before and after the Super Full Flower Blood Moon.

The term “blood moon’ is a somewhat reddish sight and effect caused by the Earth’s atmosphere as its shadow enters and blocks the sunlight, casting a reddish glow on the moon surface.

A super blood moon happens when a full lunar eclipse coincides with a supermoon, when the moon is closest to Earth and appears bigger and brighter. As the moon moves fully into Earth’s shadow, the moon will look red for about 15 minutes.

While there is a partial lunar eclipse on November 2021, the next total lunar eclipse is on May 16, 2022.

Though million stargazers around the world excitedly flocked to watch the only total lunar eclipse of the year, many complained of cloudy weather that obscured the view. Still, others have posted beautiful images of this natural phenomenon.

An offhand comment for fellow crystal lovers – – no, I did not put my stones out for charging. Reminds me of the song I used to dance in college, “High Energy”. Too much is not good for the senses. 😁🙏❤️
