COLORADO SPRINGS – Hundreds gathered in Colorado Springs to see the ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ up close.

It’s a rare sight that only comes around 18 years.

A lot of lots of kids trying to catch a glimpse through the many telescopes the Colorado Springs Astronomical society brought to a parking lot across from the Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center.

“I saw lots of craters and the shading,” said nine-year-old Savannah Hulin.
“It was really cool,” she added.

“It’s really amazing,” said 10-year-old Luciana Campobenedetto.
“Usually you only see it a couple of times in your life and it’s really amazing.”

There was also another free watch party at the Air Force Academy, where telescopes were also available for visitors.
