Waiting for a rare super blue blood moon.
A Super Blue Blood Moon in Ballarat.
We sat shivering outside waiting in anticipation for a glimpse of the Rare Super Blue Blood moon.
Our tripod set we stood with our camera ready to take a photo of the magical appearance.
It began at 9:51 pm, was at its peak at 12:29 pm and had ended by 3:08 pm.
Ballarat is famous for its cold weather and midnight was no exception, we sat shivering in the cold Ballarat summer air wondering why last week the temperature was warm and the clouds were clear, but the night of the super Blue Blood Moon the air was cold and the clouds were thick.
We needed patience if we wanted to catch a glimpse of the lunar eclipse. Patience to watch the slow transformation, patience to wait in between cloud cover.
There were times we stood for ten-fifteen minutes with nothing to see, no stars, no moon just clouds, but when the cloud dissipated it was well worth the wait.
We waited, we watched and took many photos over a three hour period. It was mesmerising watching the large moon changing shape over a period of time, and then watching the moon turn blood red.
Just before midnight
Did you see the Super blue blood moon?
We missed the blue moon here but we saw a very bright full moon..
Oh, you did it!? Just the other day I saw a film on this phenomenon on tv – it was fascinating!
The Blue moon was really pretty, and I wasn’t able to see it 🙁 Just in photos. But it was a beauty indeed.
Oh this was stunning! You were very lucky to have witnessed this! Thanks for sharing!

Cool. It was an unforgettable experience and none of us can see it again in our lifetime. Thanks for sharing the video,
The photo is great. This is such a beautiful way to spend the evening, watching something so magical.
I read about it briefly yet I missed this universe phenomena. Must be amazing to witness the wonder of nature. What an amazing experience you had!
Oh! You’re lucky you could see it and even capture a shot! It was all cloudy and rainy that night in Brisbane so we missed it… Hopefully, I’ll be somewhere in the world where I can watch the next one next year!!!
