Reader John Martin caught the full blood moon Tuesday morning over West Chesterfield. The total lunar eclipse, with the earth passing between the sun and moon, is called a blood moon because of the reddish hue cast when the earth’s shadow blocks all direct sunlight. The light reaching the moon is filtered through the earth’s atmosphere, causing a similar effect as the reddish sky at sunset.
