ValleyBiz Story |

A rare lunar occurrence made an appearance in the night skies over Swan Valley on Sunday, September 27, 2015.

The moon glowed red as a result of a total lunar eclipse – also referred to as a blood moon.

The eclipse was even more spectacular as it coincided with a supermoon – a full moon at its closest approach to the earth. The last time a total lunar eclipse and supermoon occurred together was in 1982 and it won’t happen again until 2033.

The lunar eclipse began shortly after 8:00 pm.

Cloud cover threatened to obscure the event however the sky cleared just as the eclipse started to occur.

As the earth cast its shadow over the moon it began to disappear before taking on its reddish hue.
