Moon Casts Red Glow Over London Ahead of Eclipse Event

A “super wolf blood moon” was visible in the early hours of January 21, with the moon appearing redder and closer to the Earth than usual.

Stargazers in Europe, the UK, and North and South America witnessed the lunar eclipse, which saw a small amount of sunlight refracted by the Earth towards the moon, bathing it in a red glow from our perspective.

The oddly named event has obvious references to the size and color of the moon, added to the fact that full moons that occur in January are called “wolf moons”.

This video shows the moon hours before the eclipse, already casting a red glow across the skies of London.
