Picture No 142
Super Blood Wolf Moon
The Moon will turn red in the early hours of Monday morning as Britain experiences its last total lunar eclipse for 10 years. The Moon will start to darken at 2.35am with full eclipse beginning at 4.40am. It will be free of the Earth’s shadow by 7.49am.
It is the last chance for to see a total lunar eclipe in its entirety until 2029.
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes exactly between the Sun and the Moon creating a shadow which stops solar rays reaching the lunar surface.
I’m hoping to get up at 4:40 and see if I can capture a piture of the super blood wolf moon.
Here is a before picture.
