At the exact moment of a lunar eclipse, the Moon turns a deep ruby color, due to being backlit by sunshine that moves through the Earth's atmosphere - this light is made of various blue components that have a reddish appearance during the eclipse process...the base lights up the Moon as the eclipse begins, making it a very beautiful and unusual sight. All over the world, people come out of doors to enjoy the stunning spectacle of the Lunar Eclipse, with its almost supernatural plays of light and shadow.

• At the event of a lunar eclipse, the moon moves behind Planet Earth, and Earth shield the sun's lights from shining on the Moon. This particular astronomy event can only occur when the Earth and Moon are in perfect alignment - for instance, there must be a full moon.
• The Lunar Eclipse goes on for several hours, as opposed to a solar eclipse, which will be very brief in duration.
• A Solar eclipse may not be visible to much of the world; however, a Lunar eclipse can be seen from any location, by any citizen of the globe.
