Stunning Photo's Of The Blood Moon October 2014
History In The Making!
Wednesday October 8, 2014 marked the second Lunar Eclispe of the year. The title "Blood Moon" comes from the redish, coppery color the moon takes on after it passes into the earths shadow.
Lunar eclipses are relatively common, typically occurring once or twice a year. But Wednesday's lunar eclipse is special: it is part of what astronomers call a lunar eclipse tetrad - a series of four consecutive total eclipses occurring about six months apart. The first in the series happened on April 15 this year, and the final two are forecast for April 4, 2015, and September 28, 2015.
