On Sunday, Sept. 27, people all over the world turned into astronomy lovers. The “Super Blood Moon” — a rare lunar eclipse combined with the moon being the closest to Earth in its orbit — hasn’t happened since 1982 and won’t happen again until 2033.

So it makes sense that the Internet was filled with blurry photos, wise musings, and tales of how people missed the blood moon. Celebs got in on the action, posting their own messages. 

New Yorker Sarah Jessica Parker reported the cloud-covered events from Greenwich Village via her Instagram account, writing, “Last image before total cloud cover but I see the clouds moving westerly at a good clip so fingers crossed for clearance by max at 10:47pm EST! Thats the latest for now on the lunar eclipse. From lower Manhattan, this is SJ signing off. Back to you. X”
