At approximately 4:11 a.m. , denizens across the North Coast cast their eyes and apertures skyward and beheld the strange, red-tinged light of the Super Flower Blood Moon.
The Super Flower Blood Moon gets its psychadelic-60’s-band-sounding name from the convergence of three separate lunar phenomena affecting its appearance
The moon is considered “super” due to its proximity to the earth. The moon got the name “flower” from The Old Farmers Almanac due to the simultaneous blooming of flowers in May. The moon is called a “blood moon” due to the reddish hue it will exhibit as it passes fully into Earth’s shadow causing a total lunar eclipse, the first since 2019.
