Miami Sees Partial Lunar Eclipse

May’s full moon and a lunar eclipse coincided on Wednesday, May 26, to create a phenomenon known as a “super flower blood moon."

May’s full moon is referred to as the flower moon, while a total eclipse is known as a blood moon. To complete the celestial triple whammy, and explain the mouthful of a name, the eclipse came as the moon was closest to earth, and, hence, a “supermoon." said the eclipse would be visible “from Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific and the western part of the Americas.”

This footage was posted on Wednesday morning by Juan C Avila, who said he captured it at the Miami International Airport in Florida. Reports said only a partial lunar eclipse would be visible from South Florida. Credit: Juan C Avila via Storyful
