Total Lunar Eclipse
(The quantity you type in the box is for this card. But it's OK to click the price button that reflects your total quantity of any of our cards)
Although no sunlight falls directly on a totally eclipsed moon, some sunlight bends around the Earth as it passes through the atmosphere. From this bending - or refraction - blue light is removed and only this dim red-orange color is left to illuminate the Moon.
