.In science, we have been learning about the moon. sun and Earth. Last night a super blood moon happened.
It took place in the middle of the night. starting just after 2.30am early this morning and was visible from North and South America. as well as parts of western Europe (including the UK) and north Africa.
The way the light passes through the Earth's atmosphere during an eclipse, red light from the Sun is reflected onto it, which makes the moon appear red and that is why it is given the name "blood".
It is called euper bllo moon because the lunar eclipse that took place was bigger and brighter than normal. Click on the image below to link the BBC Newsround to learn more about the super blood moon.
