Tonight’s supermoon and combined eclipse is an event that occurred only five times in the 20th century created a social media frenzy and photographers behind their lenses. Spectators hurried to post fascinating photos of the reddish supermoon, as the next one is expected only in 2033.

The celestial phenomenon took place for the first time since 1982, according to NASA. Instagram addicts had to take to their cameras immediately as the next suchlike event will take place in 18 years.

The bloodmoon was seen in North and South America, Europe, Africa, and some regions of West Asia and the eastern Pacific. For more than an hour, the Earth came between the sun and the moon and its shadow almost swallowed up the lunar disc.
