Kinnelon is lucky to have seen the blood moon on Jan. 31. This event was an astronomical phenomenon called a Super Blue Blood Moon. That is a unique title for a really rare phenomenon. A blue moon is when two full moons occur in the same month. A supermoon occurs when the moon looks magnified and the blood red color of the moon happens when it is in the shadow of the earth. This year, all three of these events happened in one night. The advent was visible all across the country. People can even catch a glimpse in Hawaii and Alaska (NASA).

In Kinnelon, the moon entered the earth’s shadow at 5:51 a.m. The climax was at 6:45 a.m.  For those who missed it, don’t worry. NASA claims that the next one will appear next year Jan. 21. However, this one will not be a blue moon. Nonetheless, the event will surely merit an early rise.
