Blood Moon

T&T viewers share blood moon photos

Sky-gazers were treated to a rare lunar eclipse known as a super blood wolf moon on Sunday night, in which sunlight passing through Earth's atmosphere lit the celestial body in a dramatic fashion and turned it red.

Tonight's 'blood moon' will be the longest lunar eclipse of the century

Tonight will see stargazers treated to the longest lunar eclipse of the century, which will see the moon turn a deep shade of crimson, making it appear as if it is drenched in blood.

Known as a 'Blood Moon', the phenomenon, which has caused some Christian fundamentalists to denounce the celestial event as a harbinger of doom, occurs when the moon passes behind the shadow of the Earth.

The staggering celestial event will last for around 103 minutes — just four minutes shy of the longest possible duration a lunar eclipse can ever last on our planet.
