    Lunar Eclipse on 16 June

    Posted by ChevScience on June 12, 2011

    We’re going to be treated to a total lunar eclipse just before sunrise on Thursday 16 June with the Moon expected to take on an eerie reddish glow.File:Eclipse from moon.jpg

    Painting showing what a lunar eclipse might look like when viewed from the surface of the moon. The moon’s surface appears red because the only sunlight available is refracted through the Earth’s atmosphere on the edges of the earth, as shown in the sky in this painting. Read here. If your going to watch it leave a message. BTW it is an important time for sowing root vegetables.
