PHOTOS: Blood red supermoon shines over New Jersey
The clouds parted around parts of New Jersey to allow the bright, rare combination supermoon and blood moon to be seen — though not for everyone
The moon was at its closest point to Earth in its orbit, making it a so-called “supermoon.” There was also a lunar eclipse that turned the moon a shade of red.
Above, see gorgeous images of the rare moon from around the world. And below are some of the most gorgeous we’ve seen captured around New Jersey.
