Portugal treated to super blood wolf moon

Skygazers in parts of Portugal lucky enough to be under clear skies have this morning been treated to the astronomical spectacle of a "super blood wolf moon".

Portugal treated to super blood wolf moon

 

The rare phenomenon, caused in part by a lunar eclipse, makes the surface of the moon appear a reddish hue while seeming brighter and closer to earth than normal.

 

A super blood wolf moon occurs when a blood moon and supermoon occur simultaneously and was best seen in Portugal at around 5.10am .

 

Astronomers are particularly interested in this year's blood moon as it is the last of its kind for two years.
