Hats off to all those people who stayed up all through the night to see the rare Super Blood Moon and then went to work. Not only was the moon closest to the Earth but it was also red. The Red is caused by the fact that the Moon was eclipsed by the Earth so gave it that shade of colour. It was also a Supermoon because the moon was closest to the sun. The Moon doesn`t stay at an equal distance from the Earth as it orbit. When the Moon is nearest the Earth, the Moon will appear brighter. The next Red Supermoon is expected in about 2033 so if you missed it, thats when you can look forward to seeing it next.
