Lunar Eclipse

The first of four lunar eclipses set to happen in the next 24 months occurred this evening. The next is due to occur on October 8 of this year. The red colouring is due to light passing through the Earth's atmosphere and can appear to be a deeper red in Cities where there is more dust and pollution in the air.
