A total lunar eclipse turned the moon a burnt-reddish-orange color for about an hour Wednesday morning. A lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes through Earth’s shadow. Because of the special light show, it’s called a blood moon.
This one appeared more than 5 percent larger than the previous blood moon in April. Wednesday’s total lunar eclipse is the second in a sequence of four. April 4, 2015 is the next one. The last will appear on Sept. 28, 2015
