Skygazers received a special treat last night and early this morning during May’s “super flower blood moon.”

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Skygazers received a special treat last night and early this morning during May’s “super flower blood moon.”

May’s full moon – a supermoon – coincided with a lunar eclipse.

Some were able to capture a ready moon around 8 p.m. on the westside and Orange Park. Some also captured the moments as the moon was going dark.
