Red Moon at night?

Forums Moon Eclipse Red Moon at night?

Grant Privett

In Wiltshire, not far from Salisbury Plain, there were some tasteful high altitude wisps of cloud before the penumbral stages, but by the time the eclipse was underway they had mainly melted away leaving a clear, if not very transparent, sky.

As the night went on and the temperature dropped to 3C some mist started to form, but this was mainly near watercourses. Pretty nearly ideal conditions.

A dark eclipse with an orange tinge. If my blood looked that colour, I would see a doctor quick!

I didnt think any colour was apparent until the umbral phases. Is that the general perception or is my colour vision poor?
