Calling all space gazers and enthusiasts! During the Monday to Tuesday transition of this week, a beautiful phenomenon known as the “Blood Moon” took place right above us. As the moon moves into the shadow of the Earth, a total lunar eclipse takes place, causing the moon’s glow to mix with shimmers of sunlight and sunsets from all over the atmosphere. And to those who missed it, at least our friends over in Brasília got to greet it with a warm, welcoming handshake.
