Early risers in most of the Netherlands were treated to a perfect view of a lunar eclipse on Monday morning.
The ‘super wolf blood moon’ is a combination of a lunar eclipse, when the earth’s shadow passes over the moon, and a super moon, which occurs when the moon is full and closest to Earth in orbit.
The red colour comes from sunlight passing through Earth’s atmosphere.
In January, this phenomena is known as a ‘wolf moon’, according to CNN inspired by hungry wolves that howled outside of villages long ago.
