Red Moon Rises Over London Cemetery Ahead of Eclipse

Stargazers in Europe, the UK, and North and South America witnessed a lunar eclipse early on January 21, which saw a small amount of sunlight refracted by the Earth towards the moon, bathing it in a red glow from our perspective.

The phenomenon is known as a โ€œsuper wolf blood moon,โ€ which references the size and color of the moon, and the fact that full moons that occur in January are called โ€œwolf moonsโ€.

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