Over the weekend, the cloudy weather prevented many from seeing the total lunar eclipse of the harvest supermoon in the High Country.
(One resident reported seeing it in Vilas for about eight minutes at about 11 p.m., according to a post at Watauga County Road Conditions.
The last time a total lunar eclipse of a harvest supermoon or “perigee full moon” happened was in 1982. It won’t happen again until 2033, according to NASA.
NASA photographers stationed in Washington, D.C., New York City and Denver captured images of last night’s rare event. See more photos below.
