This is a timelapse video of yesterday’s total lunar eclipse (aka blood moon) as captured by astrophotographers Astrofalls and Clanger_Mcbanger (great name) from Ironwood National Forest in Arizona. Total lunar eclipses are called blood moons because of their red hue, due to the only sunlight reaching the moon having passed through earth’s atmosphere, scattering blue light, and leaving only the longer red/yellow/orange wavelengths to reach its surface. How about that! And here I thought it was because a giant wolf was devouring the moon, spilling its virgin lunar blood and heralding the end times. Silly me and everyone hundreds of years ago.
