Missed the lunar eclipse? Take a look at this photo gallery

 

 

 

If you missed out on Friday’s lunar eclipse, take a look at  this gallery for some splendid photos of the “red moon”.

The total eclipse lasted one hour, 42 minutes, and 57 seconds.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes completely behind Earth and into its shadow. It happens when the sun, the Earth and the moon are perfectly aligned with our planet in the middle, thus blocking sunlight from reaching the moon. The light then appears reddish, hence the “blood moon” name.
