Blood Moon

Yesterday the sky was prettier! A phenomenon called "Blood Moon" happened and the moon turned totally orange! It was the first of 4 eclipses that are going to happen during this year, completing the tetrad*. This phenomenon happens because the Earth's shadow fell across the moon in relation with the sun.
I stayed awake yesterday from 1am to 3pm to watch it and took some pictures. If you couldn't see it you should try with the other 3 that are coming, because is a rare phenomenon and a very beautiful view that worth staying awake for!

* A tetrad is when there are four total lunar eclipses in a row, with no partial lunar eclipses in between.
