Wednesday’s moon rise was a rare combination of a blue moon, super moon and a total lunar eclipse. Photographer Craig Goodwin photographed the moon from his home in the Beacon Hill area.
There hasn’t been a triple lineup like this since 1982 and the next won’t occur until 2037. A blue moon is the second full moon in a month. A super moon is a particularly close full or new moon, appearing somewhat brighter and bigger. A total lunar eclipse – or blood moon for its reddish tinge – has the moon completely bathed in Earth’s shadow.
