Would-be astronomers across the Valley who didn’t mind staying up a little late were able to enjoy a total lunar eclipse overnight from Sunday to Monday morning. Huntingdon resident Denise Rejeanne Poirier captured some beautiful shots of the many stages of the celestial event as the moon passed through Earth’s shadow. While all eclipses are rare and special events, the full moon this month was not only a red-tinged “blood moon” but also a “supermoon,” meaning it was at perigee or the point closest to Earth in its monthly orbit. The Old Farmer’s Almanac also refers to the full moon in May as the “flower moon.” The lunar eclipse was visible across the country in areas lucky enough to have clear skies.
