So did you catch the super blue blood moon yesterday?

I manage to catch it but let’s say it was very anticlimactic

Reality:

WTF IS THAT

If your experience was similar to mine, don’t beat yourself up coz’ more than 16 million people were looking at a fake Facebook Live video of the super blue blood moon.

What happened

The fake video was broadcasted by FB page, EBUZZ, which has over 250,000 followers.

It featured a nine-year-old still picture of the moon over the Temple of Poseidon in the south of Greece which was taken by an amateur photographer, Chris Kotsiopoulos.

This is the still picture in question:

The fake video had a current timestamp and wind sounds to insinuate that the video was legit.

But, some people started to find something was off with the live-stream.

Netizens suspected it was fake as the moon was in the same spot for three hours.

By Thursday morning, the video was no longer available.

Facebook told CNN that the video was removed as it violated the site’s policies, but the page itself is still up and running.

So, while you may not have seen the super blue blood moon in its full glory, at least you weren’t looking at a picture for 3 hours. #just saying

Since you’re here, why not watch a video about a guy who lodged a Police report here in Singapore because he was friendzoned? Seriously. Here, watch it and do remember to share it (and also subscribe to Goody Feed YouTube channel)!
