Lunar eclipse - Sunset in Varese - Bonfire in Mustonate
Today, Monday January 21, around 03:30 am, the Lunar eclipse began. This photo was taken around 6:00 p.m. of the day before and the sky made clear that an extraordinary event would happen. The colors of this sunset say it all.
The next event, according to the experts, will be in 10 years. The total Lunar eclipse occurs when our satellite passes through the shadow cone produced by the Earth. The reddish color is attributed to the light reflected from our planet onto the satellite. Usually during the Lunar eclips the moon e has a much lower brightness, but today, Monday January 21, there is also a full moon. Our satellite is located at its minimum distance from planet Earth and is therefore larger and brighter. That’s why it’s also called the “Red Super Moon.
