Tried to watch the lunar eclipse last night but it was quite cloudy so viewing was spasmodic. What I did not realize was that the moon goes red when the moon is totally eclipsed. I remember two occasions when I have seen the moon brilliantly red and just didn't click what was happening, so it really isn't too late to learn! The first time I saw it, I was a child. Having been brought up in a Christian home and regularly regaled with stories from the book of Revelation in the bible, I was terrified that it was the end of the world.
