CORNWALL – A local photographer captured a recent celestial event.
Chelsey Cholette captured a blood moon – a partial lunar eclipse on Wednesday, July 17, 2019. “I was glad to have had witnessed this rare occasion,” she said.
Cholette said she snapped the picture at 9:54 p.m.
Another rare event will happen in the sky later this month but you won’t really see it.
On July 31, we will have a rare “black moon” – the phenomena of having two New Moons in the same calendar month. It will only happen in North America because the New Moon shows up Aug. 1 in the rest of the world. Our first New Moon was July 2.
