Whether they had clear skies or clouds, people all over the world braved the night skies in their home cities to gaze upon the incredibly rare phenomenon of the Super Blood Moon Eclipse. Photographers from all over the world set up their equipment, or even just whipped out their camera phones to record the special celestial event to share the experience with other moon-gazers.
Twitter was blood red during the hours the blood moon was visible in different cities all over the globe. While some countries were not fortunate enough to be in the range of the eclipse, or others had cloudly skies blocking their view, the images shared on social media made many feel like they were all sharing a global event under one night sky.
Although amateur and blurry, the blood moon still looks spectacular through the lens of a mobile phone camera.

Even the lights of a big city can't compete with the one and only Moon.

Finally, here are some tweets to ponder on which is the bigger phenomenon: The super blood moon eclipse or the advent of social media to unitedly share the real-world cosmic event, virtually?

The most amazing part of the #Supermoon wasn't even the moon. It was watching all the people in NYC standing and staring up at the sky. — Willa Fitzgerald (@willafitz) September 28, 2015
The beauty of social media is that I don't even have to go outside to enjoy the #SuperMoon2015
