Just a day after the fantastic blue moon supermoon, the sky of Singapore had a literal 'red moon'.

SINGAPORE: People in Singapore got a cool surprise on September 1. Just a day after the fantastic blue supermoon, the sky of Singapore had a literal ‘red moon’.

Ms Jocelyn Yuin Sin Aw posted her photos of Singapore’s sky with a literal red moon a day after the blue supermoon. on CloudSpotting & SkySpotting Singapore. Her photos show how the moon changed from bright red to a beautiful golden colour in only ten minutes.

All of this started at 8:51 pm when the moon first showed up above the horizon. At first, it looked fuzzy and blurry but was a bright red.

Then the moon became clearer and turned into a deep blood-red ball.

At 8:57 pm, it started to lose its redness and turned a bit more orange.

By 8:59 pm, it became a ‘big golden globe’, and by 9:01 pm, ‘the big golden moon on a wider frame, so beautiful.’
