Last Monday night, an astronomical event had Southern Californians looking skyward. A lunar eclipse appeared in the late hours of the night, from approximately 11 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. As the moon moved behind our planet, light was completely blocked from the sun by Earth’s shadow and all that made it to the lunar surface was sunlight filtering through Earth’s atmosphere, bending around the planet like we see at sunset. The result was an eclipse that was tinted red- known as a “Blood Moon.” The next lunar eclipse will occur in 2019.
