This was the morning's lunar eclipse. Here are six ways to get it right.

The sky was bright and sunny this morning, displaying a stunning total lunar eclipse. The famous "Blood Moon" has resulted from the Moon being completely red dyed. This is a reddish hue that is darker than normal. The atmosphere determines how dark the room is. When the atmosphere is clean and clear, the red color will be bright and intense. However, it will become duller and darker as it becomes dirtier. The ash can remain in the air for many years, so dirt can be caused by volcanic eruptions. The 1991 lunar eclipses became darker after the eruption by the Pinatubo volcano, Philippines. "The La Palma volcano in September 2021 was small, but we don't know if it had any direct influence," says Miquel Serra-Ricart (IAC), an astronomer at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands.

The Moon's passage through the southern portion of Earth's umbra has caused the satellite's upper half to appear darker. It has become a dark reddish-brown hue, and the lower half a deeper reddish-orange hue. sparkly.

Spain has required that observers get up at a reasonable hour to view it. At 03:33, the Moon began its passage through the penumbra (faint external shadow) of Earth. From 05:30 to 06.54, the Moon has remained in umbra (dark innershadow). Miquel Serra-Ricart (an astronomer at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands) says that the eclipse's first result is the appearance of the stars. This is due to the darkness of the umbra (dark inner shadow) and light pollution in cities. The eclipse also gave us a stunning view of the starry skies.

It is best to experience it in the Canary Islands. This place has seen the phenomenon at its most extreme. However, observations of the phenomenon have been more favorable in the Balearic Islands as well as the peninsular northeast, Catalonia.

This phenomenon occurs because of the perfect alignment of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. The satellite is submerged by the shadow projected by our planet in space, which is formed from the umbra, and the penumbra. The lunar eclipse is visible in its full splendor when the Moon passes through the umbra.

It would make sense for something to be placed in a shadow to disappear. In this instance, however, the moon appears to be illuminated and becomes coppery. He explains that if the Earth didn't have an atmosphere, the Moon would vanish completely. But since it does, the Sun's light rays travel through the layer of gas. They are slightly refracted, or deflected, and illuminate the Earth's interior, reflecting off the Moon. Serra-Ricart.

Rayleigh scattering occurs when the Sun's rays pass through atmosphere. This causes particles in atmosphere to absorb the shorter wavelength of blue light. Only blue light can pass through. The longest wavelength, which is red, makes the moon appear red.

Why is there not a lunar eclipse every month if the Moon revolves around Earth each month? The lunar orbit tilts about five degrees in relation to our planet. This means that the Moon and Earth do not lie in a straight line. The satellite therefore does not always cross Earth's umbra.

Because the moon's orbit revolves around a tilted planet, it doesn't always pass through.

Because the Moon moves in an orbit around the Earth, it is illuminated differently by the Sun depending on where it is located. This is how the lunar phases are formed. Our satellite is located between Earth and Sun when there is a new Moon. This means that we cannot see the illuminated Moon from our planet.

It is the Earth that appears in a lunar eclipse. The refraction of sunlight through the atmosphere lights the satellite. The eclipses last only a few hours, and are not as long-lasting as the new moon which lasts for a whole day.

Next November will see the next total lunar eclipse, but it won't be visible from Europe. We will need to wait until March 14th 2025 to see this phenomenon from our country.
