Super blood moon in the skies of the Valley

Half and half: Rim Zitkevicius took this shot of the moon. photographs supplied

STARGAZERS across the Latrobe Valley enjoyed a rare sight with a super blood moon last week.
On May 26, the full moon passed through the closest point to Earth in its orbit as a lunar eclipse took place, resulting in a reddish glow.
It was best seen along the country’s east coast.
Latrobe Valley Astronomical Society member Rim Zitkevicius and Celeste Gibbons were among the local residents to pull out the camera.
Both provided The Express with shots of the super blood moon, so please enjoy because experts say it will be years before we get to see another one again.
