A lunar eclipse to go down in history

We’re sure you’ve heard about the recent Blood Moon lunar eclipse but check out these pictures because they are absolutely bangin’! Lasting for nearly 43mins, the eclipse is the longest in the 21st century and got its name for the deep red colour of the moon. The light from the sun goes through the earth’s atmosphere on its way to the moon, turning the light red in the same way the sun looks red when it sets. Seeing as it happened crazy early, chances are our night owl friends missed it so here are some photos so we can all appreciate mother nature a bit more!
