Missed last nights super wolf blood moon? Well don’t worry, some very committed Derbyshire photographers captured it, and it won’t disappoint!

What is a ‘super wolf blood moon’?

In the case of a ‘super wolf blood moon’ essentially the moon will be in perfect alignment with the sun and earth.

When the full moon moves into the earths shadow, it will darken, but not disappear. Sunlight passing through the earths atmosphere will light the moon in a dramatic fashion, turning it red!

Where does the ‘wolf’ part come from?

Each moon has its own name associated with the full moon. In January it’s known as the ‘wolf moon’ inspired by hungry wolves that howled outside of villages long ago – spooky stuff.
