Super blood wolf moon: Stunning photos of the rare celestial event around the globe

The moon's reddish hue captivated millions of star-gazers worldwide.

Star-gazers around the world were treated to a stunning lunar phenomenon on Sunday night to welcome the new year, and the images did not disappoint.

The super blood wolf moon was actually the result of three lunar events combined. It was dubbed the "wolf moon" because it was the first full moon in January and was considered a "super moon" because the full moon was at its closest point to Earth, according to NASA.

The reddish hue of the super blood wolf moon was visible to people in the Americas, Europe, Africa and Pacific region from late Sunday into early Monday, according to NASA.

A photo taken out of Encinitas, California, showed the blood moon in its full, vivacious glory.
