Lunar lovers in North Cyprus were treated to a special show on Monday when they witnessed the first “super moon” eclipse in 33 years.
A super moon occurs when the Moon’s orbit is at its closest point to the Earth. Clear skies meant there were perfect conditions to witness the celestial event, which started at just after 4am.
The totally eclipsed body took on a reddish hue caused by the glow of sunlight passing through the Earth’s atmosphere, leading some to dub it the “blood moon”. Prophecies of the world’s end, however, failed to materialise.
