When most people were tucked up in their beds last night, I could not miss this wonderful show of our universe-the lunar eclipse. Getting the picture was a waiting game, hoping the cloud wouldn’t spoil the spectacle. On this occasion, the heavens were kind to me.
The next one is in ten years time and I’m hoping to get that one too!
This kind of eclipse occurs when the Earth passes precisely between the Sun and the Moon. In this situation, the Sun is behind the Earth, and the Moon moves into the Earth’s shadow.
