On Monday 28 September, a spectacular “blood moon” was visible between 3-4am as a result of the simultaneous occurrence of a “supermoon” (a full moon when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit) and a lunar eclipse (the moon passes into the shadow of Earth). This “blood moon” appears red because while sunlight still reaches the moon through Earth’s atmosphere, most of the blue light is scattered, leaving red-coloured light to hit the moon’s surface.
My photos of this “blood moon” didn’t work out so here’s the artist’s impression ….
Say, we can go where we want to
To a place they will never find
We can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
