Vancouver stargazers share epic images of the super blood wolf moon (Photos)

While the Vancouver forecast called for a high chance of rain, skies were clear for the epic super blood wolf moon and total lunar eclipse last night.

As a result, Vancouverites were privy to a truly amazing celestial display. Big, brilliant, and beautiful, the moon looked a whopping 15 per cent brighter and seven per cent bigger than a regular full moon due to its proximity to earth. Further, many photos captured its sultry amber or copper hue, which was caused by the earth’s shadow.

The January supermoon also coincided with a total lunar eclipse – an event that won’t occur again until 2021.

The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre also hosted an epic viewing party with the observatory open so guests could check out the moon up close through a telescope.

Have a look at some of the local photos captured of this awe-inspiring spectacle.

Have you experienced the Super Blood Moon? When I found out that the Super Blood Moon was not going to rise above the city, I decided to go another iconic landmark to capture this amazing sight.
