Super blood moon and lunar eclipse stun spectators around the world

The Earth's shadow crept across the full moon as people waited for a cosmic event known as a super blood moon. A total eclipse lasted about 15 minutes as Earth passed directly between the moon and the sun. As the eclipse deepened, it appeared as though half the moon had vanished. The moon's reddish-orange colour was the result of all the sunrises and sunsets in Earth’s atmosphere projected on to the surface of the eclipsed moon. From Jerusalem to Jakarta, Sydney to New York, the rare lunar event drew stargazers out in droves.
