Total Eclipse of the Moon over Zurich


Did you manage to see the total eclipse of the moon in September 2015? If you didn’t you’ve got a long wait ahead as they say the next super+ blood moon won’t be until 2033! This combination hasn’t previously been seen since 1982.

A super moon occurs when a full or new moon makes its closest approach to earth and even though it is still approximately 220,000 miles away, the moon looks bigger and brighter than usual.

Luckily for us Zurich based photographer Lorenzo Borghi was on hand with his camera to catch these stunning shots and is able to share them with us.

This full blood moon marks the end of a tetrad, a series of four total lunar eclipses just six months apart. The 21st Century will see 8 of these tetrad, which is quite extraordinary.

With thanks to Lorenzo for these great shots. For more information on Lorenzo’s photos see here.
