Russia's Super Blood Wolf Moon, in Photos


While the world set their eyes on the sky for 2019’s first and only super blood wolf moon, residents of Moscow were out of luck as cloudy skies hid the phenomenon from view. People in other parts of Russia had better chances, though, as the full phase of the eclipse could be seen in the Urals, Siberia and the Far East.

Here’s a look at the best shots on social media.

In St. Petersburg, the moon made an appearance despite a cloudy sky. 

Outside Yekaterinburg, the moon hovers over the trees. 

The rare lunar eclipse makes the red moon appear brighter and closer to Earth. 

In Vladimir region, the moon was seen almost fully bright red.
