Blushing blue moon

The world experienced the rare phenomenon of a so-called blue blood supermoon on Jan. 31. At least, those of us who were willing to wake up early did, that is. 

If you slept in, enjoy the cosmic sight captured by a number of photographers.

The moon takes on a reddish tint in this shot of the lunar eclipse (the blood moon part) as seen from Singapore by photographer Rameses Mendoza.
