An eerie yet powerful blood red moon graced the district’s sky last night as part of a total lunar eclipse.
It was the first of its kind in more than two years.
The effect was caused by the moon, the sun and Earth being exactly aligned.
The moon appeared red because the sunlight which passed through the Earth’s dusty atmosphere refracted to the red end of the spectrum.
The colour can vary depending on the amount of dust in the atmosphere.
The lunar eclipse should not be confused with a solar eclipse, which happens when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, partially or fully blocking out the sun.
