A blood red moon behind One World Trade Center in Manhattan
by Mark Molloy, The Telegraph:
Is that Mars or the moon?
Jennifer Khordi took the breathtaking image from 25 miles away in New Jersey, describing it as “one of the most amazing things I have ever seen”.
The semi-professional photographer, who is from New Jersey, shared a series of photographs of the incredible moon rising behind One World Trade Center in Manhattan on Instagram and Facebook.
“It was just absolutely amazing to see this,” she said. “I plotted this shot and lined up with a lookout 25 miles from Manhattan.
“I think the best one is where the moon is directly behind the World Trade Center.
“I have always wanted to get this shot,” she said, adding: “The moon is a fickle beast!”
The sight of a blood moon is considered a bad omen by doomsayers, who have previously claimed it could signal the end of the world.
In September last year, sky-watchers around the world got a treat when the shadow of Earth cast a reddish glow on the moon, the result of a rare combination of an eclipse with the closest full moon of the year.
