‘Super blood moon’ rises over ancient Greek ruins of Corinth




Thousands of stargazers looked to the sky as Wednesday night’s full moon passed through its closest point to Earth while also coinciding with a lunar eclipse.

Many had cameras ready to capture the rare orange-red moon dubbed “super blood moon.” The eclipse means the moon was bathed in a deep reddish glow for at least a few hours.

The event itself was best viewed in parts of South America, Australia and south-east Asia, but European countries such as Greece were also lucky enough to get a look at it.

Here are some of the best pictures from Australia and Greece:
