CLEVELAND, Ohio –Many stargazers, night owls and space observers saw the eclipse of the supermoon Sunday night.

A big moon was encapsulated in a total lunar eclipse. The lunar combination happened for the first time in 30 years.

While some had a hard time seeing it due to cloud cover, others got an amazing view and sent in some wonderful photos for you to see!

The supermoon, which comes around once every year, appeared 14% larger and 30% brighter in the sky.

As if that wasn’t already a spectacular sight, the eclipse was the fourth and final in the so-called “blood moons,” a phrase that has become popular to describe the four lunar eclipses we have seen in 2014 and 2015. Scientifically this is known as a “lunar tetrad.”

Another supermoon eclipse will not occur again until 2033.

The last one happened in 1982.

The total eclipse began at 10:11 p.m. ET and peaked at 10:47 p.m. ET. The total eclipse lasted about 72 minutes.
