October 9, 2014 § Leave a comment

Starwatchers across the Americas, East Asia and Australia were treated to a spectacular total lunar eclipse today, and astrophotographers captured stunning photos of the “Blood Moon”, nicknamed such due to the coppery, reddish color the moon takes as it passes into Earth’s shadow.

This phenomenon was the second this year, after its first appearance on April 15.  There will be two more Blood Moon showings in 2015, on April 4 and September 28, respectively, making it a rare tetrad.

美洲、东亚和澳大利亚的天文爱好者们今天尽享到月全食的盛景,由于在进入地球的影子里时反映太阳在大气中的光线放射,平时清亮银色的月亮, 变成了铜红色,被昵称为“红月亮”或“血月亮”。 这里是各国天文摄影者拍摄的精彩照片。

这一现象是今年的第二次,4月15日曾经发生过一次。明年2015年的4月4日和9月28日“血月亮”还会有两次亮相,这一连四次的罕见事件被天文学家们称为“血月亮四分体“。
