Lunar Eclipse/ Blood Moon

Oh no it’s the end of the world! Just joking! What this basically is that every 20-30 Years the  earth’s shadow covers the full moon. The reason why the moon looks red is because our atmosphere bends the light so it looks red. We got up at about 3:00am BST to see it.

There’ll be another lunar eclipse in 2018 but most of Western Europe won’t see it. The next one that I’ll see will be in 2033. I hope you had good luck seeing it.

Sorry about the grainy Image. It's because this got taken on a Camera

  1. Terrific picture Joe! I stayed up all night to watch it, lovely and clear rising over the rooftops. Glad you were able to see it.
