Caption

Total lunar eclipse. Optical image of the total lunar eclipse of 4th April 1996. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes into the shadow cast by the Earth. The Moon does not turn black during an eclipse as some light is refracted onto it by the Earth's atmosphere. It appears reddish as the atmosphere scatters blue light away. A lunar eclipse is visible from any part of the Earth where the Moon is above the horizon.
