皆既月食、スカイツリーてっぺん乗せ。 pic.twitter.com/JJWngp7NNl— てつ (@tetsu_skytree) January 31, 2018
In Tokyo, the phenomenon began to manifest shortly before 9 p.m. and was punctuated by office workers on their way home, as well as downtown diners and drinkers, turning their eyes skyward to appreciate the view.
Some of the most striking images were captured near the Tokyo Skytree, the 634-meter (2,080-ft) spire that rises from the city’s Sumida Ward.
You can compare the super blue blood moon over Tokyo Tower (left) and Skytree (right), to see which you prefer.
The orange glow of Tokyo Tower made for less contrast with the blood moon, but also imparted a warmer, more relaxed atmosphere to the sight.
