Total Lunar Eclipse as observed from the Philippines on December 10, 2011. A lunar eclipse occurs during rare occasions when the moon passes through the Earth’s shadow, at times when the Sun, the Earth, and the moon form a straight line. The deep red hue of the moon is caused by sunlight refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere where most of the blue light has already been scattered, leaving only the red light to fall on to the moon’s surface. No special equipment is required to view the lunar eclipse, just the naked eye. Photo Credit: Anthony Urbano. For more images of the December 10, 2011 total lunar eclipse, click here.
