When is the Blood Moon
This coming Monday night (Yes Monday :-0) there is a blood moon
Here is the times which it should be all red.
|4:41am||Full eclipse begins|
The Moon has completely entered the Earth’s umbra and starts to turn red.
|High in the west|
This is when the Moon is closest to the centre of the Earth’s umbra.
|Fairly high in the south west|
|5:43am||Full eclipse ends|
The Moon will start to leave the Earth’s umbra and enter its penumbra losing its red colour.
|Fairly low in the west|
How to Photograph the Blood Moon
Below is a link to the Royal Museums Greenwich (Thanks to Cathy Crolla for the link)
It has a good link to a video on how to photograph eclipse
Where will it be in the sky
I had a quick check on the Photographer’s Ephemeris and the Blood Moon is going to be over the Irish sea, so there is a possible chance of the blood moon with sand dunes in the foreground, or (not sure if this would work) a picture of the blood moon and the wind turbines on the horizon.
