(SPOT.ph) A blood moon graced the Philippine night skies on November 8 for a solid 85 minutes. It was a sight to behold, one that we won't be able to see IRL til 2025 again—not counting, of course, the penumbral lunar eclipse happening in 2023. The moon was engulfed in a reddish hue for a good part of an hour before slowly turning back to its usual golden hue because last night, our skies played host to a total lunar eclipse. You know, that celestial phenomenon where the earth blocks the path of sunlight to the moon, casting a shadow onto the lunar surface. But if you're part of the unlucky few who had clouds, buildings, or whatever blocking your view of the majestic red moon last night, don't feel bad. FOMO is real. But hey, Spotters, we've got you! We rounded up some of the best snaps of last night's lunar exhibition, and we think we've got enough to last you for the next three years.
