- Some San Antonians got great shots of last night's supermoon lunar eclipse, while others weren't so lucky.
The supermoon lunar eclipse last night produced many an amateur astronomer. Around the world, folks dusted off telescopes and took to backyards to watch the moon disappear and reappear with a reddish-brown tint.
The blood moon captured San Antonians' attention, perhaps in part because of Pastor John Hagee's prediction that it foretold the end of the world, or maybe just because it's a surreal astronomical anomaly. Although cloud cover obscured the view of the moon for many, some still got good shots of the not-quite-once-in-a-lifetime event:
