The next "Super Blue Blood Moon" will take place not over 100 years from now, but rather january 31, 2037, according to a tweet by NASA Moon.

Outside the Griffith Observatory, which often draws tourists looking at the city's famous Hollywood sign, people lounged on the grass and peered through telescopes for a better look at the red-tinted "blood moon" shadow.

Thankfully, many photographers took pictures, meaning you can still catch a glimmer of the spectacle even if you were unable to witness the event live. However, this lunar eclipse is unusual, because it happened on both a blue moon and a super moon, Greenhouse said.

A super moon happens when the moon orbits close to the earth, a blue moon occurs when there are two full moons in a month and a blood moon is a lunar eclipse that happens when the Earth's shadow passes over the moon.

"The moon was visible for only a short time before it disappeared behind the cloud", said Stuart, who took his photos from Castle Way shortly before 5.30pm.

Crowds gather on the Marine Parade Beach to watch the moon rise on January 31, 2018.

NASA confirmed the moon is orbiting 223,068 miles from Earth, rather than the usual 238,855 miles, making it appear up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter in the night sky.

In a lunar eclipse there is a sun-Earth-moon alignment, during which the Earth refracts, or bends, light from the sun - and only red is left.

According to NASA, the moon will be 223,068 miles from the Earth tonight, nearly 15,000 miles closer than average.

The total lunar eclipse promptly began around 4:50 a.m in a cloudless sky.

An nearly full moon is seen through the clouds over Frankfurt, Germany, Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018. It was the first lunar eclipse of the year.

The optimum time to view the UK's super blue moon was around 12.40am on Thursday, February 1, when the moon was at its highest. "The oxygen atoms scatter the white sunlight and they sorta've emphasize the blue and red component, so its goes and bounces off the moon".
