Super Blood Wolf Moon over Los Remedios Ruins in Antigua Guatemala BY RUDY GIRON

Super Blood Wolf Moon over Los Remedios Ruins in Antigua Guatemala

This Sunday night, January 20th, we had the chance to see a Super Blood Wolf Moon and a Lunar Eclipse on the Western hemisphere. The actual lunar eclipse happened after 10:0pm. We were not lucky in Antigua Guatemala since all afternoon and night the sky was filled with clouds.
