Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse 2014




In a total lunar eclipse, the full moon turns a copper red color as it passes into the Earth's shadow. During the process, the moon's bright glow dims, taking on a red hue produced by shimmers of sunlight seeping through the Earth's atmosphere. The entire reddening process takes about an hour; with the usual silver tone present before and then re-emerges at the eclipse's completion.  
These photos were taken this morning over Warren Park.
