Bill O'Keefe shared this photograph of the Super Blood Wolf Moon rising in a field over Sargent Road in Warwick on Sunday, Jan. 20. "I was shooting with a Nikon D500/28-300 mm zoom," he said in an email exchange with the Warwick Advertiser. "I was on my way home from the Wallkill River National Wildlife refuge in Pine Island. The photo was taken shortly after sundown." The moon was near its perigee and as such can be described as a supermoon, according to Wikipedia. "As this supermoon was also a wolf moon (the first full moon in a calendar year), it was referred to as a 'super blood wolf moon;' 'blood' refers to the typical red color of the Moon during a total lunar eclipse." Other celestial events in 2019 include: Supermoon on Feb. 19; total solar eclipse on July 2, partial lunar eclipse on July 16; and annular solar eclipse on Dec. 26.
