Red moon is there an eclispe?????

    red moon near me any ideas???



    You have stolen the moon....I cant see it!

    ya house is on fire :shock:

    If i remember correctly, a red moon indicates a dramatic alteration in the moons orbit, with 2 possible results:

    1) the alteration pushed the moon further from earth, which will be corrected automatically by the earths gravitational pull

    2) the moon was pushed closer to earth, which will cause the orbit circumference to decrease, and for us to lose a few minutes off each day.

    Orangey red here in deepest darkest Wiltshire not far from that bunch of rocks!

    I thought it might have been something to do with a harvest moon??? but then again that might just be a full moon.

    could also be those Wiltshire Moonrakers at it again

    wiki says:
    Often, the Harvest Moon seems to be bigger or brighter or more colorful than other moons. These effects have to do with the seasonal tilt of the earth. The warm color of the moon shortly after it rises is an optical illusion, based on the fact that when the moon is low in the sky, you are looking at it through a greater amount of atmospheric particles than when the moon is overhead. The atmosphere scatters the bluish component of moonlight (which is really reflected white light from the sun), but allows the reddish component of the light to travel a straighter path to your eyes. Hence all moons (and stars and planets) look reddish when they are low in the sky.
