No, Blood Moon is not the latest book in the Twilight Saga. It’s even better than that, and Hawaii residents had a front row seat earlier this week to see it firsthand. Blood Moon is the nickname given to our moon during a lunar eclipse. In fact, this Blood Moon marks the start of a lunar tetrad, or four total eclipses in a row, the first of which took place on April 14. The next one is scheduled for October 8, so mark your calendars.
Hawaii was a prime spot to see the Sun, Earth, and Moon in alignment, and see the Blood Moon take shape. Exploration: Hawaii set up our cameras in Waikiki, at both Kapiolani Park and Fort Derussey. This is an animated GIF of the lunar eclipse sequence. Watch as our moon turns into the Blood Moon.
