Unlike other sports, the atmosphere during a baseball game plays a huge role in fans minds. It’s not just a game, it’s a beautiful day for a game.
Sunday night, baseball and the surrounding aesthetics came together perfectly on the North Side. With the Cubs playing a late September game, an astronomical anomaly sat in the sky.
Fans at Wrigley Field couldn’t get enough of the Blood Moon.

Eclipse of the moon, #JakeArrieta hits a HR and gets a curtain call! Blood moon over Wrigley— Sue B (@MLBChicky) September 28, 2015
The moon Sunday night is a rare combination of a lunar eclipse while the moon also appears to be bigger and brighter than normal.
Even as the Cubs and Jake Arrieta put on an impressive show on the field, fans couldn’t help but turn their cameras to the sky.
The moon was so impressive that the Cubs put it up on the video board before the start of the game.
