RUSS HONS: Photo Gallery — Supermoon Total Lunar Eclipse

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What happened in the sky Sunday night hadn’t occurred in 33 years. And it won’t be visible again for 18 years. What is it? It’s a total supermoon lunar eclipse, also known as a blood moon, and Grand Forks photographer Russ Hons captured it in these amazing shots. The supermoon total lunar eclipse is a confluence of three things: The moon is full and in its closest point in its orbit around the Earth, as well as being a total lunar eclipse. Supermoons appear 14 percent larger and 33 percent brighter than other full moons. Russ recorded the event starting with a few pictures of the supermoon as it rose over Kings Walk Golf course in Grand Forks before the eclipse. He took more shots as the eclipse started and continued through the “blood” full eclipse.
