NEW YORK (WABC) -- New York City served as the perfect backdrop to the extremely rare super blue blood moon.

For the first time in 30 years, a blue moon synced up with a supermoon and total lunar eclipse. In other words, the moon was super big and super bright as the shadow of the earth eclipsed its surface.

Check out these stunning pictures of this astronomical anomaly next to some of the Big Apple's most iconic landmarks:
