Some conspiracy theorists tried to panic gullible followers by claiming that Sunday's "Blood Moon" would mark the end of the world but with no earthquake or any other natural calamity, the apocalypse prophecy proved wrong.

In fact, people from different parts of the world witnessed the rare celestial phenomenon on Sunday night with the moon turning reddish due to convergence of three lunar events -- total lunar eclipse, full moon nearest the fall equinox and closest approach to Earth for the year. It has happened only five times since 1900 and the next one set to happen in 2033, according to NASA.

Here are stunning pictures of 27 September "Blood Moon" taken from different parts of the world:

Blood Moon
The moon, appearing in a dim red colour, is covered by the Earth's shadow during a total lunar eclipse in Bogota, Colombia September 27, 2015. Sky-watchers around the world were treated when the shadow of Earth cast a reddish glow on the moon, the result of rare combination of an eclipse with the closest full moon of the year. The total "supermoon" lunar eclipse, also known as a "blood moon" is one that appears bigger and brighter than usual as it reaches the point in its orbit that is closest to Earth.REUTERS/Jose Miguel Gomez
