A red moon graced the sky in most parts of China for over an hour during a total lunar eclipse on Wednesday night.
The lunar eclipse began around 8:00 p.m. and lasted for about five hours. As the moon passed into Earth’s shadow, it exhibited a reddish tinge as the sunlight was refracted while shining through Earth’s atmosphere. The red moon was visible between 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., lasting about one hour. The last time a complete lunar eclipse occurred was September 28, 2015, and the next lunar eclipse will happen on July 28, Xinhua reports.
On Wednesday night, it was cloudy in Guangzhou, but the moon was still seen clearly in the sky. Here are some of the beautiful moments of the total lunar eclipse and the red moon seen in Guangzhou.
