The Full Blood Super Moon eclipse that took place on the 26/5 2021 was the event many people had been waiting for.
Something that really made it special was that it happened in front of the Blue Horse Head Nebula and to the left of the Andromeda Galaxy. Visible through the Stellarium telescope. Here is my take on it.
Interesting to note that at the start of the eclipse the moon was in front of the Nebula & by the next morning, it had moved away from it.
Eclipses of the Moon occur when the Moon moves into the shadow of the Earth. When the Moon is fully immersed in the dark part of the shadow we see a total eclipse of the Moon. At such times the eclipsed Moon usually takes on a dark reddish colour from the light bent or refracted onto the Moon by the Earth’s atmosphere.
