During a total lunar eclipse, Earth completely blocks direct sunlight from reaching the Moon. The only light reflected from the lunar surface has been refracted by Earth's atmosphere. This light appears reddish for the same reason that a sunset or sunrise does. Due to this reddish color, a totally eclipsed Moon is sometimes called a blood moon. 📸 by Thomas Knoblauch #moon #eclipse #earth #space #astronomy #astronomer #bloodmoon #fullmoon #nature #wow #video #beautiful #sky #night
