The special blood moon was easily visible this morning in Eindhoven. Earlier forecasts had warned of too much cloud cover, but the weather turned out to be quite clear enough.
Due to a rare total lunar eclipse, the moon turned a copper red colour. The moon was moreover larger than normal, since it was very close to the earth. A blood moon is a rare phenomenon.
The lunar eclipse began at 02:11 and reached its peak at 4:48 in the Netherlands, when the earth was placed precisely between the sun and the moon. For those who missed it this time round, the next opportunity is in 2033.
