Brilliant Captures of the October 8 ‘Blood Moon’


The ‘blood moon’ is the result of the moon passing into the darkest part of Earth’s shadow, causing the moon to glow with a spooky copper colour. And if you missed last night’s show don’t fret! The total eclipse is part of a so-called tetrad of lunar eclipses set to take place from 2014 to 2015. The first total eclipse in the tetrad took place in April 2014, and the next eclipse will occur in April 2015 with the last in the tetrad set for Sept. 2015.
