On Saturday evening 60,000 people gathered in Central Park for the Global Citizen Festival, better known as “the free Beyoncé concert.” The next evening, a rare, breathtaking lunar event transfixed the entire city. What caused it? Maybe it was a coincidence, or maybe it was this hug.

Queen B introduced First Lady Michelle Obama at the end of her set, and the two beautiful badasses embraced each other to a roar of cheers. I’m not saying this otherworldly moment caused the super blood moon, but I’m also not saying it didn’t.
