Super blood moon puts on show


The super moon, next to a Sacred Heart Catholic Church spire, is almost completely in the Earth’s shadow during a total lunar eclipse, Sunday night. The Moon turns red because of the refraction of light from the sun moving around the Earth during the lunar eclipse.


The moon begins to turn red, next to Sacred Heart Catholic Church, during the total lunar eclipse Sunday night. Totality began at 9:11 p.m. and ended at approximately 10:23 p.m. central time.


Almost totally dark the super blood moon seems to hang suspended between the cables of the old Sedalia Water Tower on East Main Street Sunday night.


The super blood moon turns red in Earth’s shadow as it continuities to rise in the night sky framed by Scared Heart Catholic Church spires.

A super moon total lunar eclipse began a little after, 8 p.m. central time, Sunday Sept. 27, giving Sedalia a show that will not occur again for 18 years. A super moon according to NASA occurs when the Moon’s orbit is slightly closer to Earth causing the moon to appear 14 percent larger and 33 percent brighter. A super moon coupled with a total lunar eclipse hasn’t occurred since 1982. Sunday’s moon is also the fourth blood moon to occur since April 2014 the last in a lunar eclipse tetrad.
