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.

Tonight's Blood Moon was a challenge, we had a few light clouds from time to time but the effort was rewarded.
