Here is where Manitobans were able to photograph the recent lunar eclipse

Manitobans were treated to a rare celestial sight Sunday night.

A total lunar eclipse was visible over Manitoba and other parts of Canada on Sunday. This eclipse, which saw the moon pass through Earth’s shadow, was a blood moon, due to the event turning the moon’s hue red. It was also nicknamed a flower moon since it occurred in May. With all of the conditions, the event was also nicknamed a “super flower blood moon.”

Manitoba was considered to be in the best spot for people to view the event.

Several Manitobans were able to get a clear glimpse of the eclipse and shared photos of the event with CTV News Winnipeg. Here are some of the shots we received.
