After 152 years, the super blue blood moon finally arrived on Wednesday night.
It's a combination of three different lunar events, a super moon where the moon appears larger, a blue moon is the second full moon in a calendar month and a blood moon where the moon appears red.
The moon was about 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter - and had a reddish tint.
Unfortunately, Cyclone Fehi's arrival meant the viewing was hampered by clouds for some.
But some lucky Kiwis managed to take some stunning photos. Their images show the giant red orb hanging in the night sky.
Here's a round-up of the best from around the country.
