Total Lunar Eclipse Bathes Moon In Red Glow In North Europe To Pacific
The moon was bathed in red on Tuesday during a total lunar eclipse visible from North America to the Pacific but not in Europe.
The eclipse’s totality, where the moon is entirely in earth’s shadow – lasted between 10:17 and 11:42 GMT.
It was seen across North and Central America, parts of South America and Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
It wasn’t visible in Europe, which will have to wait until the next total lunar eclipse on March 14, 2025.
During a lunar eclipse, the moon turns red because the only sunlight reaching the moon passes through earth’s atmosphere, NASA said in a specially dedicated page on its website.
