A partial Lunar eclipse

Yesterday we had a beautiful partial lunar eclipse here in Denmark. For several hours the Moon went red, as Earth’s shadow swept across it. My dad took some photos of it, but we’ll have to wait until they are developed, to see whether or not they’re any good.

The Moon was red, because the Earth’s atmosphere bend that color more that the rest of the spectrum. I believe, that it’s the same effect that makes the sky blue.
