More about the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse from Perth Observatory
At the start of the eclipse the Moon will pass through Earth’s penumbra (Latin for “almost, nearly”) where the sunlight will start to be obscured by the Earth and the Moon will start to be covered be the Earth’s shadow. Once the Moon is completely covered by the Earth’s shadow it’ll turn a lovely copper colour.
The copper appearance of the Moon is due to Rayleigh Scattering where the blue part of the sunlight hitting the Earth’s atmosphere is scattered by the nitrogen molecules and the red and yellow part of the sunlight continues through the atmosphere and goes onto hit the Moon.
