The super blood moon over Seattle on Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015.

The Northwest was was treated with a spectacular sky show Sunday night as a lunar eclipse coincided with a supermoon -- a full moon when it's at its closest to Earth on its orbit. Clear autumn skies allowed for prime viewing.

The phenomenon hasn't happened in 33 years, and we'll have to wait another 18 to see it again in 2033 (we however do not yet have a forecast on what the weather will be like that day).

In Seattle and beyond, people captured the event from a variety of views. We've gathered up some of our favorites from Twitter below.
