Why does a totally eclipsed Moon glow coppery red?



Only red light can pass through the Earth's shadow and reach the Moon.



During a lunar eclipse the Moon reflects only red light from the Sun.



During a lunar eclipse the Sun is cooler than normal, so its light is redder.



Only red light is able to pass completely through the Earth's atmosphere and reach the Moon.
