Blood Moon Phase July 2018

July 27th 2018 - Was the day of the ‘blood moon’ total lunar eclipse and because of the rarity of the blood moon I wanted to stay up and capture this celestial event, and with good fortune the skies were clear. The total phase lasted 1 hour and 43 minutes from start to finish.

What is a Blood Moon?

A ‘blood moon’ is, in short, a total lunar eclipse; where the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon rather than the Moon in-between the Sun and the Earth.

Why does the Moon turn red?

So why does the Moon turn red,? I hear you say! When the Moon passes the Earth, the Earth blocks all sunlight from reaching the Moon’s surface. However, some sunlight reflects onto the Earth atmosphere, covering the Moon in a reddish glow.
