Hood River photographer Stephen Datnoff provided this image of Sunday’s supermoon, aka Blood Moon. The supermoon happens at the lunar perigee, the spot in its oblong orbit that brings it closest to the Earth. The eclipse was the last in a series of four spanning two years, a phenomenon called a tetrad. The last supermoon total lunar eclipse occurred 33 years ago, and the next one won’t happen for another 33 years.
