Lunar Eclipse

moon-eclipse.jpgWell, I just went outside to check and it is happening.  About 40-50% is covered it looks to be and is kinda of a dusty dirty brownish kind of color.

The full Moon will turn yellowish and then appear blood red, rusty or grey, depending on the atmospheric conditions on Earth…..

During the eclipse, the Earth will line up directly between the Sun and the Moon, which will be covered by the Earth’s shadow.

Sunlight will pass through the edge of the Earth’s atmosphere, scattering blue light and giving the Moon a reddish hue.

The Moon should turn red by about 3 a.m. the eclipse will end by about 6 a.m.

The Moon will be in front of the Leo constellation, with the bright star Regulus to its right and Saturn to its left.

You can see the stars as well or in this case, one of which is a planet.
