Did you catch the Super Blue Blood Moon last night?
In Australia, it was a little tricky for most of us to see through the clouds, and sadly, that means you'll be waiting around about 50 years for another one.
So what makes this moon so special? Three things.
It's called a blue moon when a single month has two full moons. While you may think this would be an infrequent occurrence, in fact a blue moon takes place about once every two and half years.
A super moon is when the full moon looks a lot bigger than average.
Finally, it's called a blood moon because of the pinkish hue reflected on the moon's surface because of the lunar eclipse which occurs when the moon travels into the Earth's shadow
All three of these awesome astronomical events took place at once and these incredible pictures from all around the world managed to capture just how truly magical the whole thing was.
