with ANY lunar eclipse the moon will turn a shade of red. some of the light from the sun refracts through the atmosphere of the earth, and heads to
the sun. the atmosphere is thicker at edges of the earth like that, so the light travels through mroe pollutants. this pollutants disperse the light,
and cause the redness. i have pictures from a lunar eclipse last october if anyone wants to see.
didn't read the article, but the eclipse is visible in eastern europe, most of africa, aisa, indonesia, australia, new zeland, and some of
oh, and there's at least two, more commonly three, and sometimes four or five lunar eclipses a year.
also, if anyone wants me to explain what causes an eclipse, just ask.
