Super Blue Moon

A “super blue blood Moon” tonight as it passes the closest point to us in its elliptical orbit (perigee syzygy). This coincided with a lunar eclipse, but not visible in the UK (hence no blood for us).

The videos show the sidereal motion of the moon as the camera is fixed on one point in the sky.
