Blood Moon, Total Lunar Eclipse Over Chandler
A fantastic red moon was visible in the sky in Chandler last night during a total lunar eclipse.
The eclipse lasted from around 3.30am to 5.30am. Due to refraction of sunlight in the Earth's atmosphere, the moon isn't totally dark during such an eclipse, but instead is hit with faint red light, hence the name: blood moon. The video below shows a time lapse of the blood moon coming out of the eclipse. The moon gets brighter, and also moves down toward the horizon.
