Did you get a chance to step outside last night/early this morning to look at the blood moon? This was the first full lunar eclipse in three years, and the first in a series of four that will conclude in September 2015. the Earth will begin to position itself between the sun and the moon for the first of a series of four total eclipses to conclude in September 2015. As for the red hue? As CNN explains it, “In a total lunar eclipse, the full moon turns a coppery red as it passes into Earth’s shadow. During the process, the moon’s bright glow dims, taking on a red hue because of shimmers of sunlight and sunsets seeping through the Earth’s atmosphere.” Gorgeous.
