Local photographer Loriannah Hespe captured this image of the supermoon lunar eclipse and blood moon, Sunday, Sept. 27.

This rare event—a full moon at its closest proximity to the Earth and concurrent with a lunar eclipse creating the red color—will not happen again until 2033, according to NASA.

“This photo was taken immediately after sunset, as the moon began to rise over homes in San Clemente,” Hespe said. “The progression of the moon was tracked from the top of Lantern Bay Park in Dana Point.”
