Stargazers were looking skyward last night hoping to catch a glimpse of the rare red-tinged lunar eclipse.

Some people are calling it the super blood moon.

A supermoon happens when a full or new moon makes its closest approach to the earth and appears slightly bigger and brighter than normal.

People across B.C. got a good view of the moon as there were not too many clouds in the sky in most areas.

If you did not get a chance to see it, check out the photos and video below.

The next supermoon is scheduled to appear again in 2033.

WATCH:¬†From new York to London, from Buenos Aires to Jerusalem, here are some of the best images of the ‘Supermoon” captured from around the world.
