The view from Kalamazoo
The fantastically named “super blood wolf moon” of Jan. 20 and 21 was a stunner combining a total lunar eclipse (blood) with January timing (wolf) and a particularly large appearance due to being closer to the Earth (super).
The Kalamazoo Astronomical Society in Michigan delivered an extraordinary set of images showing the moon and the occasional twinkling star around it. The society describes this shot as “cropped and slightly processed.”
SpaceX founder Elon Musk even shared one of the KAS images, which more than doubled the society’s follower count on Twitter.
